Those who have tried my Rice Cooker Chicken Claypot Rice Recipe might find the taste of this dish somewhat familiar because that was where I extracted the idea of doing this steamed chicken by using a similar seasoning sauce – one that’s rich, salty, savoury and sweet with a touch of zing from fresh ginger that will awaken your senses. Best part is, this recipe is an excellent time-saving meal because it’s one of those dishes which you can prep the night before, chill in the fridge overnight to marinate and then just pop into the steamer pot the next day. It’s that quick and easy. If you think you might not like the overpowering flavour of ginger in this dish, you can omit the minced ginger and substitute with the same amount of ginger juice instead so it adds on another layer of sweetness to the chicken. Enjoy!
