  • Half of a whole chicken
  • 1 handful dried wood ear mushroom
  • 3 fresh shitake mushrooms , sliced
  • Chili sauce for serving , I am using homemade Hunan style chopped chili
marinating ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce , if you want to dark the color
  • 2 green onions , white parts (keep the green ones for garnish)
  • 10 ginger sheds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  1. Cut chicken into chunks and then soak in clean water for around 30 minutes. Change the water twice during the process. Transfer out and drain.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the chicken chunks with all the marinating ingredients. Set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Pre-soak the wood ear mushroom with clean water and slice the shitake mushrooms.
  4. Mix all the content together. Transfer to steamer and steam over high fire about 30 minutes or until you can easy insert a chop sticker in the chicken meat. You can steam this dish with steamed rice if the chunks are not too large. But you need to choose a longer cooking program to guarantee the steaming time.
  5. Transfer out and garnish some chopped green onions. Serve with any chili sauce you prefer and steamed rice.
Recipe Notes

If you have Chinese sausage, add some slices can improve the flavor.
