Now the only deviation I did from the recipe was that I used normal soy sauce because I couldn’t find light soy sauce, and I used normal bacon because I had no clue where to find ham that’s asian. Also I used chicken thigh only because I couldn’t be stuffed cutting up a whole chicken. Besides, I was only cooking for two: myself and my sister.
Oh, I’m not sure whether the chicken was corn-fed though. Didn’t get a chance to ask it. Anyways, I followed the recipe and mixed it all into a bowl. Refrigerated for an hour.
The instructions said “Steam at high heat for 25 to 30 min. Serve hot with plain rice“. Me being a guy, didn’t really understand this in full detail because I need step-by-step instructions. I wondered to myself, “How on earth will I steam this without the sauce dripping away?“. I didn’t think this through thoroughly and so I proceeded with the assumption that you’re meant to simmer it. Oh how wrong I was!
Another huge mistake was not doing it in a non-stick pot. If you see the picture above closely, you’ll see that the bottom is burnt and the food is stuck as well. I must say the aroma still smelt nice though!
The end result?
The verdict? Very niiiiceeee…
