Steamed Chicken With Chinese Herbs ??????

An old recipe of mine adapted from here. Unlike those steamed herbal chicken served in the restaurant, this home cooked recipe is rather mild and sweet in taste. Kids will definitely love this! 
The gravy are so good to pair with rice.

1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Make sure to rub the salt all over the chicken legs.

2. Transfer to an aluminum foil (double layer). Wrap and seal, keep in the fridge let it marinate at least 1 hour.

3. Return to room temperature, steam in a hot steamer for 20-25 minutes or until 'just cooked'. The steaming time depend on the size of the chicken leg, do adjust accordingly.
