Easy to prepare, cook, and always a crowd pleaser. I find that steaming is a more reliable method to get succulent chicken, plus the resulting broth is so flavorful that I somehow suspect that the broth is more the star than the chicken in this dish. Serve this dish with a bowl of steaming white rice and garlic ginger chili sauce.
