When zion was less than 18 months, I mostly boiled the chicken & added spices rarely in his food. As days passed by he started developing his tastebuds & he developed interest in flavours.. He is just like me, if the food dosnt taste good he doesnt eat it. So I have been experimenting with simple ingredients & marrying them with chicken. The Cinnamon Butter flavour is excellent. Even adults will love this. If you are making this for adults than add in some chili powder or green chilis.
After doing some experiments, I have come to a conclusion that steamed chicken tastes juicer & tastier than boiled chicken. So in this recipe & in many other zion's chicken recipes, I have steamed the chicken. Its very easy & simple to make. This is how I made it.
- 1 cup chicken cubes
- 2 pinch of cinnamon powder
- 2 tbsp of butter
- salt as per taste
- 1 tspn soya sauce
- 1/2 tspn garlic chopped
Steam the chicken in the steamer for about 10 mins. If you dont have a steamer, just use the pressure cooker but donot put on the whistle. Once they are cooled set aside. Now in a pan add in butter, fry garlic, add in chicken, cinammon powder, soya sauce & salt. Give this a good mix & turn off the flame in 2 mins. The chicken is ready. If you over cook this the chicken will turn out very hard. Soya sauce is salty, so be careful when you add salt.
