Steamed free-range chicken with chicken essence ~ 鸡精蒸鸡


Essence of chicken is supposed to be beneficial to health and if you're feeling tired, taking a bottle of chicken essence will  help boost up your energy.  Unfortunately I dislike taking the essence straight from the bottle as I do not fancy the raw taste.  So, I poured in a bottle to this dish and it really helped to give some 'oomph' and value added taste to this chicken dish!
