The instruction how to make Steamed Chinese chicken with ginger and shiitakes

  1. Slice chicken on an angle and combine with wine, salt and plenty of freshly ground white pepper in a bowl. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes. Place chicken, overlapping, onto a heatproof plate. Scatter ginger and mushrooms over chicken. Place in a bamboo steamer and steam for 8-9 minutes or until cooked. If you have a multi-layered steamer, place carrots and chopped broccoli on a plate on top of chicken for the last 3 minutes of chicken cooking time until just tender (otherwise blanch in boiling water).
