I really ran out of ideas on how to cook Chicken. Due to time constraint on weekdays, I usually opt for the fastest way to cook my chicken with the simpliest ingredients. However, it came to this point that the thought of having steamed/soya sauce/oyster sauce/black bean sauce puts me off. Forget about roast or grill since I hate the oven-cleaning process. And so, I did a bit of research and found this is Kuali, Steamed Herbal Chicken Wings recipe by Amy Beh.
Went home, searched high and low for wolfberries (kei chi) and red dates. Aiyah....I have used up my supply during Chinese New Year and didn't replenish my stock!! I guess substitute with dried longan should not be too vast different. How wrong I was cos dried longan is sweet! Luckily I just put in few pieces, if not, my steamed herbal chicken wings got to renamed as Sweetened Herbal Chicken Wings!
The chicken wings tasted not too bad, however the herbal taste was too mild. I took some leftover for lunch the next day and surprisingly, it tasted so much better. Perhaps I need to leave it overnite for the herbs to release its flavour. Very determine to try my 2nd attempt soon.
