Steam Chicken Wings With Lup Chong (Chinese sausages)

This is another classic favourite home-style Chinese dish of mine. It's super silky and moist. When I was a kid this is what I grew up on - lots of steamed foods.  Steam meats, seafood and eggs etc

In those days, both my parents had to work super hard all day and night in Chinese restaurants as kitchen hands and dish washers to support us. It was hard and we didn’t have much. Now I look back, I’m really appreciative of both my parents for working so hard, supporting us and teaching us not to waste any food.
So my mum always prepared these delicious healthy dishes in the fridge in advance so when we finished school for the day we would come home and my duty was to pop one of these “ready to go steamed dishes” in a pot of boiling water. And she taught me how to cook the perfect rice too! I was only 10 at the time!!!  Talking about master chef junior haha ~  

So today I really want to share this great recipe with you. It’s a wholesome, easy, delicious meal and very convenient to make ahead in case you have a busy working day.
So for all working  parents who try to make something delicious for their families after a long day at work, you really deserve great applause !!

Enjoy xx


700gram free range chicken
1 tbs salt
4 x lup chong sliced (Chinese sausage - you can get this at the Chinese grocer, unfortunately it’s not gluten free)
4 cloves of garlic - flatten with the blade of your knife
2 slice of ginger - shredded
2 tsp corn flour                                              

1tbs soy sauce
1tbs oyster sauce
1tbs hoisin sauce
1 tsp sugar
A few drops of sesame oil
Mix sauce well in a bowl

Note: Unfortunately this recipe is not gluten free. For gluten free, please removed  the chinese sausages (Lup Chong) and hoisin sauce from the recipe. And use gluten free Oyster sauce and gluten free Tamari sauce.

Lup Chong (chinese preserved sausages) Find this in chinese/asian grocer. You can use it for stir fry dishes too. Just make sure you cook it before consuming! It's not a salami /garnish . so cook it baby !!!

Prep your ginger and garlic

I like to clean the chicken with salt! I think it makes it silky.

Chicken wings, cornflour , garlic & ginger and Lup Chong Check!!!! Nearly there

Preparing the marinade! Sugar, Oyster sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce and hoisin sauce

Marinade is ready !!!

Mix well!! Getting that flavour you need to marinade for at least 45mins or overnight in the fridge

it's cooking time !!! steam baby steam~

Voila ~ It's steaming hot and smells divine ! I couldn't removed the steaming basket so i just left it and serve it on dinner . Very rustic lol

Result: Succulent, silky smooth chicken wings. Love the Lup chong for that extra flavour Enjoy xoxo
