Chicken Essence Steamed Chicken

While chicken essence is great and packed with a whole lot of benefits but I really do not enjoy drinking them straight from the bottle so it was great that I came across this quick and simple recipe which help me to clear them from my larder. The taste after steaming is much nicer with a hint of sweetness from the dates and wolfberries.
