Steamed Asian Chicken

Best Chicken Baste Ever

Steamed Asian Chicken
This recipe (Asian steamed chicken) is one of my favorite dishes, mostly because of the fantastic baste that flavors the meat. This baste is awesome when used as a dip while grilling chicken, or brushed over a whole chicken 3-4 times while roasting. Fantastic on grilled shrimp and fish, too.

Asian Chicken Baste

1/2 cup dry sake
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp Thai fish sauce
2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
1 ½ tsp fresh lemon juice
1 ½ teaspoons mirin
1 Tbsp minced ginger root
1 Tbsp lemongrass paste
1 large garlic clove, minced

Mix all ingredients and refrigerate 2-24 hours. To make a marinade, add another cup of sake and two cups of cold water.
