4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts uncooked
3 scallions, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 slices of fresh ginger root, finely chopped
1/2 can of water chestnuts, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dry sherry
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
20 foil squares 5×5
Cut chicken breasts into 1/4-inch cubes. Dice scallions and set aside.
Combine ginger, sherry, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, salt and sugar in a bowl. Add chicken and water chestnuts to the mixture and marinade in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the foil. Place one drop of sesame oil and 1 drop of soy sauce onto each piece of foil. Place 3-4 pieces of chicken in the center of the foil. Fold foil in half to a triangle. Fold up two open sides to seal and crimp.
In a steaming basket lay a single layer of the foil pouches in the steamer. Cook for 5-8 minutes until juices seep out of the foil packs. Serve in the bamboo steamer set on a plate. Stack the foil triangles in a spiral on top of each other. Serve and enjoy!
