Lo Mai Kai (Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken) 糯米鸡

前阵子为工作,家事两头忙。 时间和精力都不够用了,更别说要下厨或烘焙了。而之前答应姐妹们的糯米鸡,也一拖再拖。趁着这个周末比较清闲,就快快把它完成,总算有个交代!自制糯米鸡,不像外卖的那么油腻,而且饭香肉润,真是美味可口!
After my busy schedule with GST implementation as well as my family matter. Finally, I'm free this weekend to make my Lo Mai Kai/Steamed glutinous rice with chicken.
Homemade Lo Mai kai is not as oily compare to those serve at dim sum shop. 
These Lo Mai Kai are soft, moist and flavourful glutinous rice with juicy chicken and meaty chinese mushroom. Hmmmm...Just too good to eat!!!
