This steamed chicken is very delicious, and is popular in Southeast Asian countries... normally served with chicken rice. We love it so much. It is very easy to make.

Was very good. I used chicken stock instead of water and I put whole onions and garlic cloves in the steamer basket to help flavor the meat. I served it withe roasted vegetables and rice. Tasted fantastic!

I thought this was pretty good. I omitted the salt completely and just added a pinch of it while it was steaming. What is the point of rubbing it in salt and rinsing, anyway??
