In practically less time than it takes to dig out a menu and pick up the phone to order take-out, this simple and simply delicious (and healthy) steamed chicken and sausage dish can be on your table. Chinese sausages can be found in Asian markets, but many supermarkets now carry them in their ethnic foods sections. Serve with plain steamed rice or while the chicken is steaming, prepare this easy 15-Minute Bacon and Egg Fried Rice for a special, yet quick side dish.
Using a sharp knife, thinly slice the chicken across the grain.2.
In a glass or ceramic pie plate, combine the chicken, cornstarch, salt, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, and sambal, stirring to evenly coat. Add the sausages.3.
Create a steamer: Arrange three metal jar lids a large deep skillet. Fill with 3/4-inch of water and bring to a boil.4.
Carefully set the pie plate in the pan, cover with the lid and steam until nearly cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes.5.
Stir, then top with the snow peas. Cover and steam until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes longer. Stir to combine.6.
Serve with steamed rice or Bacon and Eggs Fried Rice.
