This steamed chicken is delicious, easy and healthy. This is a popular way of preparing chicken in Southeast Asian countries.
The sodium amount listed in the nutrition for this recipe does not include the 1 cup salt, much of which is rinsed off in Step 2.
Good simple recipe. Id never steamed a chook before and I think I'm a bit of a convert. I didn't use a cup of salt(!?) for the rub - more like a couple of tablespoons. Not sure if I missed anything there - it still tasted great! Thanks - 30 Jul 2009

Was very good. I used chicken stock instead of water and I put whole onions and garlic cloves in the steamer basket to help flavor the meat. I served it withe roasted vegetables and rice. Tasted fantastic! - 10 Mar 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
