Herbal (Tong Kwai) Steamed Chicken Wings

This morning i really ran out of ideas to cook lunch for hubby to take to work then suddenly one popped up on my mind. It is "Tong Kwai" Steamed Chicken Wings, this dish is frequently cooked by my mom
when i was young. I like this dish because of the fragrance of"Tong Kwai"and it will enhance one's appetite at anytime. Although i'm not a big fan of "Tong Kwai", I still love this healthy dish. Not only that "Tong Kwai"is healthy for us - for both men and women, it is known to improve one's blood circulation and strengthen our reproductive organs, especially females.

Ingredients : 5 Chicken Wings or (2 leg quarters - cut into pieces)
                     2 Slices Tong Kwai (i cut very small pieces)
                     5  Stamps Mushroom ( soak and cut into slices)
                     5  Ounces Dried Lily Flower (soak and tie knot)
                     3  Ounces Red Dates (cut into two pieces)
                    1/2 Teaspoon salt
                    1/2  Teaspoon Light Soy sauce
                    1/2 Oyster sauce
                    1/2 Corn Starch
                    1/2 Teaspoon Wine (Brandy or VSOP)
                     3 Dashes of pepper powder

Marinade chicken with ingredients all of the above for 5 -10 minutes.
Bring a large pot of water to boil and steam the chicken for 20 minutes.
Serve while it's hot. I hope you like this dish just like i do.
