Steamed Baked Ginger Onion Chicken

Sunday, July 20, 2008

I had been away during the last weekend for my company's half yearly meeting. Therefore, I didn't managed to try out this particular recipe that had caught my attention. So managed to get my hands on it for our lunch today. Special thanks to my dearie Hubby today coz he helped out in cutting the chicken into serving pieces. Hehe.. I have no experienced in cutting a whole chicken before, therefore I am clueless when comes to this part.. This dish taste wonderful and the meat is indeed more succulent as compared to the normal baked ones. Maybe its because the chicken had been steamed first before baking it in the oven.
