Steamed Chicken With Lily Buds

Here's another simple dish for this festive season. Nothing fancy or tradition... just a nice simple dish to go with rice or porridge. After all those baked and deep fried food for the past few days... nice to have some light flavour meat.

These are the lily buds after soaked. And remember to remove the woody bit at the bottom of the bud before cooking.

Ingredients :

1 whole boneless large chicken breast (sliced)
50gm dried lily bud (soaked)
handful of shredded ginger

Seasoning :
*
2 tbsp vegetarian oyster sauce
1/2 tbsp light soy sauce
a pinch of salt & pepper
2 tspn cornstarch
2 tbsp 'shao xing' wine/ rice wine
2 tbsp sesame oil
*
Method :

- make a knot(to prevent from breaking up) to all the soaked lily buds and set aside.
- marinade chicken meat with all the seasoning ingredients and set aside for an hour.
- combine lily buds with marinated chicken meat.
- place the meat to a baking tray/plate and spread the shredded ginger on top.

- then steam for about 20-30 mins over high heat or untill cooked.
- and serve hot.

  10. Hi ladies,

    I'm sure you can get this lily buds at any Asian food stores. This is quite a popular cooking ingredients among the Chinese. However, wish you luck! Just in case, you can't find it... use sliced shiitake mushroom instead.
    Have a nice day!

    Cheers, Kristy

  18. Hmmm. Lily buds...I can't say that I have ever seen thsi ingredient. Curious, is the texture more like a bean sprout or a pasta noodle?
    Your recipe is a very nice alternative to all the heavy meals that we have been enjoying here in the U.S. since Thanksgiving and will continue to at least through New Year. I am so stuffed.

    Happy New Year to you!
