Spring Chicken with Bamboo Shoots & Mushroom

Bought this spring chicken in wet market, buy 1 get 1 free! :D Therefore paid $6 for 2 chicks, expensive or not?? not sure 'cos this is the first time I buy this :P

The chicken looks really stuffed...hehehe managed to squeeze in all the ingredients!

After steaming for 2 hours...

  • 1 spring chicken
  • 150gm bamboo shoots, thinly sliced
  • 14 small dried shitake mushroom
  • 1 tbsp sliced ginger + 2 slice ginger
  • 2 tbsp abalone sauce
  1. Soak dried mushroom in 1 cup water till softened. Retain liquid and slice mushroom (retained 4 unsliced) thinly.
  2. Place chicken in a casserole. Stuff bamboo shoots, mushroom and ginger into the chicken cavity.
  3. Dissolve abalone sauce in retained mushroom liquid. Pour over chicken. Add in 2 slice ginger and 4 mushroom at the side of the chicken.
  4. Steam over preheated steamer for 2 hours.

Fantastic! I love this and cant wait to make it. I recently made a dish very similiar to this but with boneless chicken thighs.
I may try this with a cornish hen.
Bet that sauce was amazing with rice or noodles!
thank you!
