Ginger bean paste steamed chicken ~ 姜豆酱蒸鸡


Steaming is a very popular method of cooking in Chinese households.  It's fuss free and no oily pots or wok to clean up.   Adding cornstarch to the marinade before steaming helps to give the chicken a smooth texture and the brothy sauce goes very well with white rice.
