  1. Thank you for your quick response and best wishes for future videos

  2. Thanks for your comments. You are technically correct on the first point
    and yes, the liquid from the chicken would add great flavour to rice.
    Thanks for viewing my video on Chinese Steamed Whole Chicken.

  3. You’right. This chicken dish is simple and delicious. Thanks for checking
    out my video on my mom’s recipe for Chinese Steamed Whole Chicken:
    Authentic Recipe.

  4. Chicken base is the same as the chicken cubes for flavour, except it is in
    powder form. Usually sold in jars. Thanks for your question and thanks for
    checking out my video on Chinese Steamed Chicken.

  5. Great to hear Chinese steamed chicken is your favorite food. Thanks for
    checking out my video.

  6. what is chicken base?

  7. this is my favorite food

  8. Why didn’t you use a pressure cooker?

  9. Be sure to tell me how it turns out. Thanks for your comment and for
    viewing this video.

  10. Is this a proper way of steaming? If you place the chicken into a bowl that
    is boiling, aren’t you double-boiling instead of steaming? Also saving the
    fat drained from the chicken and the seasoning to make your own white rice
    adds unique savory flavor.

  11. Thanks Dan, I used to eat this in Singapore, but you can’t buy it in
    england. A cheap meal which is gorgeous.

  12. Great to hear you enjoy Chinese Steamed Chicken. Thanks for checking out my

  13. Mmm.. that look so yummy! Thank you for steamed chicken recipe.. Im gonna
    make one today. ; )

  14. looks really good. Will try it

  15. Why the differences in recipe in video, especially with the brown sugar and
    chopped garlic is left out in the recipe when showing stir frying
    ingredients? Just trying to figure out why two different recipes. Is
    Traditional recipe for small use and second recipe for larger amount and
    storage? Does one refrigerate or freeze the large amount?

  16. Sounds great. If you do try, let me know how it turns out. Thanks for
    viewing my video.

  17. Thanks Dan, a great video. My mum cook steam chicken a lot and its
    delicious.

  18. So simple and delicious! Thank You.

  19. Except for deep fry pressure cooker in my dad’s restaurant many years ago,
    I have no experience with pressure cookers. I just watched a video on
    pressure cooking, so it does cut down the cooking time. Thanks for checking
    out my video on Chinese Steamed Whole Chicken.

  20. It’s my pleasure to share my mom’s recipe. When you make this dish, please
    let me know how it turns out. Thanks for viewing my channel.

  21. looks good will try it w my landlady’s wok, and green onions in the garden.

  22. Greetings to you in England. Thanks for your comments. Thanks for checking
    out my video on Chinese Steamed Whole Chicken.

  23. You could add the brown sugar and chopped garlic to the stir fry
    ingredients if you like. It’s just that traditionally, green onions and
    ginger is a common combination as a topping. I should have showed a piece
    of chicken with a scoop of the topping on it. When we finish dinner, that
    whole dish of ginger and green onion is all eaten. We probably could finish
    two containers of that in one dinner. Thanks for your question and thanks
    for viewing my video on Chinese Steamed Chicken.
