The instruction how to make Steamed chicken with spring onion

  1. Trim the tops from the spring onions, leaving a good part of the green stems.
  2. Finely chop the remaining green stems and set aside to garnish.
  3. Bring the stock to the boil over high heat in a large wok or saucepan. Place the potatoes in a single layer in a steamer, then place over the pan, cover and steam for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, rub the chicken with the oil and some sea salt. Place in a shallow heatproof dish thatu2019s large enough to hold all the breasts in a single layer, and will fit on a steamer in the wok or saucepan.
  5. Place the chicken dish in a second steamer and sit over the potatoes. Cook for 10 minutes, then add the lengths of spring onion to the chicken and steam for a further 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the potatoes and spring onions are tender.
  6. Remove the steamers, then pour 600ml of the chicken stock into a jug. Strain any chicken cooking juices from the dish into the stock to make a light chicken broth.
  7. Add the chopped spring onion greens. Divide the spring onion lengths among 4 shallow bowls, top each with a chicken breast, then halve the potatoes and scatter them around the chicken.
  8. Ladle over the chicken broth, season with freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.
