Chicken Dim Sum with Bimi, Mushrooms & Sour Cucumber

This week it was time to try out a new Jamie Oliver recipe from his 15 minutes cookbook: his chicken dim sum! Left out the coconut bread and some side dishes but it still was delicious and love the steamed chicken. Never did this before but I'm definitely going to do this again because it's just so simple and easy. And all you have to do is wait 6-8 minutes until the chicken is done. So perfect for after a long working day!

Duration: 15 minutes

The ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 1 chicken breast
  • 125 gr chestnut mushrooms
  • 100 gr bimi
  • 1,5 tbs hoisin sauce
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tbs sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs dried coriander
  • Himalayan sea salt

  1. Heat up some water in your kettle. 
  2. Cut the chicken in strips of 1 cm. Coarsely chop the mushrooms and mix with the chicken and the hoisin sauce and the juice of half a lime. Add a pinch of Himalayan sea salt. 
  3. Put this in a steam basket together with the bimi and steam for about 5-6 minutes or until everything is cooked. 
  4. Cut the cucumber into small stripes with a vegetable peeler. Mix them with the soy sauce, white wine vinegar and the dried coriander in a bowl. 
  5. Roast the sesame seeds until they are golden brown.
  6. Serve the chicken, bimi and mushrooms on a plate, sprinkle over the sesame seeds and have the sour cucumber on the side!
