我想问,为何要放在锡泊纸上去蒸呢?
有什么用意吗?

Sherleen.T said...

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

spdong, actually with or without foil also ok. i just like to keep it warm with foil and also avoid steaming water drip into the chicken dish..

I am not familiar with the ingredients. But I was wondering whether it is good for mothers that just gave birth.

蓝色小厨 said...

Really nice but "tang kuai" is not suitable for me! Everytime I eat "tang kuai" I will feel sick.

Delicious and healthy!

This is not just a nutritious dish alone; it must be very nourishing too; with the 'tang kuei' ingredient :)

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

sohcool, you need to remove
"Tong Kue" only if you going to prepare for small kid like below 3 years old.

I love this recipe Sonia! I have lots of those herbs in the fridge that my mother in law left in the fridge (and I haven't used at all..haha). Thanks for the recipe. Will try when I come back!

tigerfish said...

Minimal seasoning is good! I like this style. The herbs will just shine with the chicken after steaming.

Lori said...

This dish is beautiful. I'm not sure I can find all the ingredients here, but likely some similar things to substitute. Perfect use for some of our local chicken in the freezer.

Angie's Recipes said...

A very appetizing and flavourful chicken dish!

My Little Space said...

Dang gui chicken is one of my favourites. It's simply irresisitible. I'm pretty addicted to dang gui aroma actually. ha...

Yum! I love simple dishes such as this and with chinese herbs too! Delicious with a bowl of steaming white rice to drizzle the sauce with.

Dumpling Love said...

I made this the other day, Sonia. It was fantastic! I love the taste of the herbs and it's definitely different to how we usually prepare chicken. Thanks for the recipe!
