This dish is healthy and very easy to make. Is one of the dish I ate during confinement. The dates are good for blood circulation, goji berries are good for eyes and the ginkgo nuts are good for memory. It helps the new mummies to replenished their blood and energy.
1 half chicken
5 red dates, without seed
5 black dates,with seed
10 ginkgo nuts
3 pcs mushroom, sliced
A few slices of ginger
1 tbsp of sesame oil
11/2 tbsp of soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional,1 tbsp of Chinese wine/ brandy
Wash, clean and dry the chicken. Rub the chicken with salt and pepper and put it on a dish. Add the sliced ginger and set aside.
Soaked the mushroom till soft and slice it. Wash dates, ginkgo nuts (without skin and shell) and goji berries till clean. Put it all over the chicken and drizzle the sesame oil and soy sauce over it. Heat it in a steamer for 45mins or till drumstick is fully cooked. It is really sweet and delicious.
** insert skewer into the drumstick until clear liquid can be seen.
The chicken was finished before I can take picture of it. Below was a smaller portion without the mushroom and ginkgo…
