Steamed & Panfried Chicken ~ 蒸炸鸡

The lady boss of a restaurant recommended this dish to me.  She said it's something different, the chicken is steamed for a while and then lightly panfried to give it a crispy effect, so the skin is crispy and the meat is tender.  It has become a popular dish in the restaurant and because it's rather time consuming to prepare this dish, it's only available during weekends.  True to what she said, this dish is tasty and delicious.
