Ingredients
For Marinating
For the Dipping Sauce
Instructions
  1. For the chicken you can use half a chicken or chickens parts to your liking, I will use legs and thighs when I make this. You would want about 500-750 grams of chicken.
  2. Clean the chicken and then spread the marinating sauce evenly on both sides. Lay ginger shreds and green onion shreds over to marinate at least 30 minutes.
  3. Then place in your steamer. I am going to use my rice cooker steamer tray. If you are using a steamer with wok or pot, steam with high heat for around 20 to 30 minutes until soft (or you can easily insert a chop sticker in). Transfer out and cut into chunks of your favorite size. Sprinkle with spring onion.
  4. While the chicken is steaming, prepare the dipping sauce. In a small sauce pan, heat up 1 tablespoon sesame oil and stir fry chopped garlic and spring onion until aromatic. Then add oyster sauce, light soy sauce, and water. Mix well and bring to a boil. Transfer to dipping bowls and cool down a little bit. Serve the chicken with the dipping sauce and rice on the side.
Recipe Notes

If using 500 grams of quarters (separated before or after steaming), this would cost 37 Baht. For 2 servings, this is about 54 cents per serving.
