Chicken steamed with gojis
This dish can be made with deboned chicken as well, but it’s much more flavorful with the chicken still bone-in. Gojis are berries, popular in Chinese cooking, that can be easily found in Asian markets.
- 2 lbs chicken legs
- 2 shallots, chopped
- ¼ cup gojis or dried cranberries
- ½ tsp dry ginger
- White pepper or black pepper to taste
- 3 Tbsp coconut aminos or soy sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- Salt to taste
- Chives for garnish
Separate chicken thighs from drumsticks and rinse in running water. Lay on a deep plate.
Place all ingredients, except chives, on the chicken and mix well.
Place a metal steamer into a pot of boiling water. Put the plate on top of it. Cover and cook until chicken is just cooked, 20-25 minutes.
Chop chives and garnish chicken before serving.
