Lotus Leaf Chicken



 

This is one of our dim sum staples:  Lotus Leaf Chicken (珍珠雞 – literally translated to mean ‘pearly chicken’).  Josh loves this and could finish one all by himself.

It is essentially sticky rice stuffed with chicken, bits of dried scallops, mushrooms, and dried shrimps, all wrapped in a lotus leaf and then steamed.

It is savory and quite yummy… and very filling.
