Every bite of the chicken is tender, juicy and full of flavours. When a dish tastes this delicious, it is a pure bonus that it is healthy too. This easy to make recipe is bursting with the flavourful superfood ingredients: garlic, Shiitake mushroom and Goji berries. The ultimate way to pack as much nutrition as possible into one dish.

The steaming method is not only a healthy way to cook food, it also keeps the chicken moist, juicy and retains the natural flavours of ingredients.

The Goji berries are sweet and slightly sour, the Shiitake mushrooms are earthy and meaty and the fried-garlic oil is aromatic. The layers of flavours result in a flavourful and interesting dish to delight our taste buds.

  • The boneless chicken thigh has more flavour and less of a chance of drying out during cooking.
  • Garlic oil has a multitude of purposes. I usually make more and store it in the fridge.It is the perfect way to add flavour to your dish without the hassle of peeling the garlic every time.
