This is one simple recipe which I picked to cook for my family during busy days. It turned out to be so good that I have bookmarked to cook again when we go back to my mother in-law’s house for Chinese New Year holidays.
It is always good to have a collection of easy to cook and simple recipes during this time as I have to cook numerous dishes for a big group for several days. This recipe requires only 2 main ingredients – chicken meat and chives, yet it tastes awesome. I only need to increase the portion according to the number of people to serve.
