Steamed Chicken with Waxed Meat - Wax Meat #1

*More nourish mag winners below this post*

A simple dish that will make you eat and eat and eat more rice.

Easy to do and definitely lovable to gobble.
Thanks Jes for sharing this wonderful recipe.

This was my first time using waxed pork belly and it was delicious!

Steamed Chicken with Waxed Meat
Largely adapted from: Jes's Deli Kitchen 

750gm chicken (2 large whole legs or half a bird)
2 chinese sausages, sliced
50gm waxed pork belly, sliced

1 tsp ginger juice
2 tsp light soy sauce
1 Tbsp Shao xing wine
1 Tbsp corn starch
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/3 tsp salt
2 Tbsp water

Mix the marinade evenly onto the chicken
Moisten the sausage to ease the peeling
Wow, I was so accurate, LOL.
Do this as the chicken marinates
use a dish that will be able to hold some gravy
Check the center to see if it's done. If the chicken looks raw, steam it longer.

    Oh not yet, sorry. Been super busy

    I think so, you can try

  5. Hi Wendy! Happy CNY!

    My helper cooks this every week (almost) for our weekday dinner... the same ingredient except the waxed belly... just the chinese sausage... I should check out the belly version too...

  6. you know, this year i never buy any waxed meat or waxed on a much smaller scale this year..lazy..that day wanted to cook 'cai' then realised i didnt buy cabbage..!

  7. Looks good, yum! yum! I think I have seen the waxed belly somewhere. Must buy and try!

  8. Hi Wendy, is there wax in waxed meat? Jenny

  9. Jenny,
    No candle wax or beeswax is added to make waxed meat. It's the fat of the meat that is 'waxed' through drying.
