About Steamed Chicken Recipe

Steamed Chicken is an easy peasy recipe which is prepared with few basic ingredients. It is a zero oil chicken dish where chicken along with the ingredients are wrapped in banana leaf and steamed in a steamer. Steamed dishes are simple, quick and always tender in texture. For the authentic taste, flavour and health related issues I recommend to use banana leaf for wrapping the chicken. If you are unable to source the banana leaf you can use aluminium foil to wrap the chicken.
