if you want to add flavour to the steam, feel free to replace the water with a broth or stock of your choice

here, we've added added a bit of chopped lemongrass to the water

if you have one, you can use a cooking thermometer to read the temperature of the chicken as it cooks

Prepare the steam cooker

first step

prepare the steam cooker

pour about 2 centimeters of water in to the base of the steam cooker

then place the steamer compartment into the steam cooker base

the water should not enter this compartment

then cover the steam cooker

Preheat the steam cooker

second step

preheat the steam cooker

Let the steam cooker heat up over a medium flame

wait a few minutes until it releases heavy steam

if you are using a cooking thermometer, poke it into the centre of the thickest part of the chicken

lift the cover carefully

the steam is extremely hot. let it dissipate before continuing

place the chicken in the steamer compartment

the steam should be able to circulate freely

carefully place the chicken on a single layer of the steam cooker, with space between each piece

seal the steam cooker shut

and lower the heat to a minimum

the steam will begin to cook the chicken, and sterilise the surface

Let it cook for 9 minutes

now wait for 9 minutes

Stop cooking

fourth step

if you are using a cooking thermometer, then as soon as it shows the desired temperature, stop cooking

if you are not using a thermometer, try and catch the chicken fillet without getting burnt. Then, cut in the thick part, to check how cooked it is. If you are not pleased with the result put it back in the steam cooker and check it every minute. As soon as you are satisifed , stop cooking, and get all the chicken fillets out of the steam cooker, your fillets are ready. If you are not going to eat them immediately, allow them to cool down and quickly place them in a sealed box: you can keep them in the fridge for a couple of days.
