This was nice. I had some trouble figuring out how to steam it, but it was easy once I figured that out. The chicken was moist. I felt like it needed more ginger or a touch of Chinese spicy mustard or something, but that might just be my taste. I served it with sticky rice and a vegetable stir fry. Thank you!
