Start with the Ginger Chilli sauce and don't wash the bowl as the flavour will enhance the rice further along.

When you put the chicken in to steam the first time, you will have 45 min to get the vegetables ready, plenty of time. So it's important to get the first steps done so you can get the chicken on as early as possible, then the dinner doesn't seem to mtake so long.

Other vegetables you could use are: snow peas, cabbage, chinese cabbage, bean sprouts, baby corn.

You can also serve with a dipping dish of soy sauce and freshly chopped chilli.

    Loved this recipe.  Used leeks instead of spring onions for stuffing because I had them on hand. Definitely worth repeating.
