Clean Succulent Chicken With Light Savory Gravy

Tender and succulent is the name of the game. Plain and simple, yet easy to prepare, “Jing Kai” (Steamed Chicken); is a dish made for the young as it comes with lots of light savory gravy. Most Chinese households probably have their own little twist to make this classic chicken dish uniquely theirs. The key is the timing of steaming – just fully cooked so as to preserve the tenderness of the meat. Here’s The Viand’s take on Jing Kai (Steamed Chicken).




  • Chopped chicken – bite size, Ginger strips, Chopped Garlic, White Pepper, Oyster sauce, Sesame oil, Light Soy and Shaoxing Wine. Yok Chok (Solomon’s Seal Rhizome) and Kei Chi (Wolfberry) – both soaked in hot water.



  • Step 1 : Start by marinating the Chicken the Chicken with all the Ingredients except the Yok Chok (Solomon’s Seal Rhizome) for at least a couple of hours. Placed the Yok Chok underneath the chicken and steam for at least 30-45 mins (depending on the heat and size of the Chicken). When the meat starts to shrink from the bone, it’s cooked !!
