Huiji Baked Chicken Fillet

Steamed Herbal Chicken is always one of the most easiest dish to prepare because what you need is to assemble and wrapped the chicken with pre-packed Chinese Herbs (recipe 1) or Spices (recipe 2), STEAMED it for at least 45 minutes to an hour depending on the size and parts of the chicken used.

Here with a quick short-cut method, I replace the usual Chinese Herbs with Huiji Waist Tonic which served similar result and  herbal taste.


HUIJI BAKED CHICKEN FILLET


For this recipe, you could choose to use either Chicken Breast, Chicken Fillet (softer and more tender) or Chicken Drumstick (boneless) according to individual preference. For us, Chicken Fillet is always on the top list follow by Chicken Drumstick because I am not a fan for Chicken Breast Meat which I always find it too dry and tough.


(Serves: 2 | Preparation: 30 minutes | Cooking: 15 - 20 minutes)

Ingredients:
200g Chicken Fillet, cut into slices
1 Cup (20ml, using huiji measuring cup) Huiji Waist Tonic
5 Slices Old Ginger, shredded
1 Stalk Spring Onion, cut into sections
10g Wolfberries, optional

Marinade:
1/2 Tablespoon Ginger Juice
1 Tablespoons Huiji Waist Tonic
1 Tablespoon of Light Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 Teaspoon Cornflour


Method:-
1. Marinate the chicken fillet with marinade and set aside in the fridge for about 30 minutes or more.

2. Using a large piece of aluminum foil with another piece of baking paper on it. Place marinated chicken fillet, shredded ginger, spring onion and wolfberrie on the baking paper and wrapped foil tightly into a parcel.

3. Place foil parcel in a preheated oven at 200 °C (degree Celsius) and bake for 15 – 20 minutes or ALTERNATIVELY, steamed  it over boiling water for about 15 minutes.

4. Remove foil, unwrapped and drizzle 20ml of Huiji Waist Tonic on the chicken fillet and serve immediately.

    1. Yes! You should try this Phong Hong. Any herbal wine can be used if you can't get hold of Huiji Waist Tonic :)

    1. Hi Nami, if you can't get hold of that waist tonic in US, maybe you can try using some dry Chinese herbs or even bottled Chicken Essence.
