Zhaotong Steamed-Pot Chicken with gastrodia elata blume

Zhaotong Steamed-Pot Chicken with gastrodia elata blume is a famous local specialty of Yunnan. It is renowned for its unique way of cooking, fragrant aroma and rich ion.                                                     

In the old times , there used to be a restaurant famous for its steam potted chicken. Later they created a new variety with gastrodia tuber in the soup, becoming one of the well known local nutritious dishes in Kunming.

Early in the Qianlong Era of the Qing Dynasty, the steam potted chicken became popular among the common people. Jianshui County has a long history in producing the best pottery ware in Yunnan. Pots produced in this county has different shapes and forms.

Steam - Pot Chicken became popular in southern Yunnan during the reign of Emperor Qian Long of the Qing Dynasty. Jianshui County is famous for pottery products. A craftsman named Yang Li created a special steampot with an empty pipe in the middle. When chickens are steamed, they are put in the pot with some ingredients and covered. Then the steampot is put in a larger pot filled with water. The chicken is cooked by the steam, and the steam gathers and combines with the chicken in the steampot. Therefore the chicken is tender, delicious and nutritious. 

The steam pot has a hollow tube fixed in the center, up to the height of the pot. Food including the raw chicken pieces, ginger, salt and so forth are put around the tube and the pot is placed onto a bigger pot with boiling water underneath. Steam will come up from the small hole in the middle to heat the food in the pot. The Chicken will be ready about three or four hours.
