How to make steamed chicken legs with pumpkin?
Unfreeze the chicken legs ahead of time. Peel the pumpkin, gingers, garlic and scallions. Then wash them clean.
Wash the thawed chicken legs and chop them into small pieces with a knife, and mince the ginger, garlic and scallions.
Put ginger, garlic and chicken drumsticks together in a fresh-keeping bag. Season with bean paste, white sugar, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, oyster sauce, Chinese cooking wine and chicken essence for half an hour. Better if it is marinated overnight. If the room temperature is too high, it is recommended to refrigerate and marinate in the refrigerator to avoid spoilage.
During marinating, cut the pumpkin into thin slices with a thickness of about 5 mm. Cut it and place it evenly on the bottom of the bowl. Pumpkin slices should not be cut too thick or too thin. If it is too thick, chicken legs may be cooked and pumpkin slices are not cooked yet. Too thin may cause the pumpkin slices to steam too badly, which will affect the appearance.
Place the marinated chicken leg pieces on the pumpkin pieces.
Steam in the pot for about 10 minutes with great heat.
Please adjust the specific steaming time according to the actual situation. If you are not sure, you can use chicken chopsticks to poke the chicken leg bones. There is no blood, and pumpkin slices can be pierced without pressure, which means they are cooked.
Take out and add some oil. Decorate with some scallions.
If you don’t like pumpkin, pumpkins can also be replaced with potatoes, taro, carrots, sweet potatoes, yam, etc.. Do you like steamed chicken legs with pumpkin?
