Steamed Chicken with Shiitake Mushrooms & Dried Tangerine Peel 香菇橙皮蒸鸡

Goodness, just realised the last time I updated the blog was more than 2 weeks ago. It has been awhile, isn’t it ? But nevertheless, I am pretty active in Instagram and learning to take some cooking videos and editing them using the mobile recently. Not so perfect still, but I guess it’s still do-able ! LOL. Well, do catch those videos in my IG stories if you are an Instagrammer !

I must say, this is probably an outdated recipe which I have shared on IG before. But for those who doesn’t use IG, which I know many still doesn’t still, I will try my best to continue in updating this little space of mine too. I am pretty attached to this blog site as I have spent a considerable amount of effort in setting it up, designing the space and putting everything in order and it wasn’t easy. So as long as I am still able to manage, I will try my best to keep this updated and fed it with my little cooking and baking adventures in life.

Earlier on, I was presented with this cookbook known as “Best of the Best 9 – Perfecting the Art of Steaming” from the Popular bookstore and this was one of the recipes that could be found in it. It was simple and straightforward, well I probably should say all steaming recipes are pretty noob friendly too and it so happen that I have all the ingredients on hand. So here it goes, a dish called Steamed Chicken with Shiitake Mushrooms and Dried Tangerine Peel. 

Serving my one bowl meal of the same with an assortment of stir fried vegetables.

You can easily get dried tangerine peel from chinese medical halls where a good bunch of it probably costs you around 50 cents. I used it often to braise meats as it gives the extra tanginess to the sauce. But for steaming wise, this is quite the first time I am using it for this purpose. Well, not too bad for a start ! After all, it’s from a published recipe book so it shouldn’t fare too badly too. Hehehe.

So here’s to sharing this really easy peasey recipe if you are in need of a healthy and quick meal !
