Yes so have we, when we spent 4 weeks touring China in 2018, so pleased we did it then.

Oh yeah. Can I brag a bit and say I've eaten Sichuan chicken in Sichuan province? Oh my.

Looks delicious, I too love steamed Poultry and with Ginger, YUM!! I have been cooking quite a bit of Chinese myself lately and yes their Chicken Recipes are to die for especially the ones for the Sichuan Provence!!

No Barb. This is the 12 I had in freezer camp from last season. I have "sex the quail" on the list - hopefully this week.
Dave - Doug's deep fried is damn good but I reckon this is even better. Extremely moist and VERY tasty. Ginger was fresh picked from the patch.

Steamed poultry is to die for. Hot or cold.The Chinese know their birds' flesh. I reckon what does go well with this is bokchoi quartered or cut in half -- steamed as well and sauced up.
Just saying: I wasn't so keen on the quail I ate baked --but I reckon steamed would overcome many of the taste issues and solve the bone challenge.
Also with a steaming there is no waste. Everything comes off the bone.
Thanks for the vid Andrew -- overcomes my penchant to cook chook other ways.
