DOM Steamed Chicken

My grandmother will be proud of me with this post. She bought me 2 big bottles of DOM which still sits in my laundry cupboard, hardly used. I read Little Corner's post on Dom with Salmon a while back and suddenly realised what potential DOM has that is sitting at the back of the cupboard! I dusted it, took it out, and da tuh, instantly, it became my friend in the kitchen.

Marinating some chicken with sesame oil and soy sauce with a dash of  DOM and pepper. I steamed it with ginger and soaked re hydrated wood fungus. The result was a light and nourishing dinner. I used chicken thigh meat given that I usually have less than 30 mins to create a meal and meat with bones would have taken too much time. Served with rice and some veges, it was such a comfort meal! I even added an extra dash of DOM after I steamed it!

Edit: Dom or benedictine DOM is a herbal liquor beverage. For more information about DOM check out here and here
