Ingredients (serves 4)

4 x 150g chicken breast fillets
1 1/2 tbs Chinese rice wine (shaohsing) (see note)
8cm piece ginger, cut into matchsticks
6 small dried shiitake mushrooms (see note), soaked in boiling hot water for 10 minutes, stalks removed, sliced
1 bunch each baby (Dutch) carrots and Chinese broccoli (gai lan)
2 tsp sesame oil
Thinly sliced spring onion and coriander leaves, to garnish


1. Slice chicken on an angle and combine with wine, salt and plenty of freshly ground white pepper in a bowl. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes. Place chicken, overlapping, onto a heatproof plate. Scatter ginger and mushrooms over chicken. Place in a bamboo steamer and steam for 8-9 minutes or until cooked. If you have a multi-layered steamer, place carrots and chopped broccoli on a plate on top of chicken for the last 3 minutes of chicken cooking time until just tender (otherwise blanch in boiling water).
2. Divide chicken, carrots and broccoli among serving plates. Drizzle oil over top and scatter with onion and coriander.

Chinese rice wine (shaohsing) and dried shiitake mushrooms are available from Asian food shops.
