Health benefits aside, the main reason I love this dish is not because of their nutritional values (although I cannot deny they come as a bonus). It is mainly due of the simplicity of the dish. Preparing home-cooked meals can be very tedious especially after a long day at work. I am sure many of you out there can relate to me. As such, recipes like this come in handy for cooking it is a breeze!
It takes around 40 minutes to cook this dish and that is enough time for you to boil some rice and take a shower. Once you are done, the steamed chicken and rice will be ready too, waiting for you to tuck in. There is no reason not to try this power-packed recipe.
Quick tip: Skip shaoxing wine if you cannot consume alcohol. In that case you can substitute with dry sherry.
Steamed Chicken with Goji Berries is also known as:
Marinate the chicken meat with the sauces in (B) overnight or for at least 30 minutes. Do lightly prick the meat to allow it to absorb the marinade. Also, add a dash of pepper and sugar.
After 30 minutes, add slices of ginger, goji berries and red dates. Mix well and place the chicken on a piece of aluminium foil. Wrap it up and steam for 40 minutes. Optionally, garnish with julienned ginger, scallions or chillies. Serve with white rice.
