The Chicken Siomai recipe is another variation of the siomai or shaomai which usually have beef or other meat fillings. With this recipe, lean ground chicken is combined with vegetables and seasonings wrapped in a thin layer of dough wrapper. A popular snack staple especially in Chinese restaurants, it makes up for an easy meal to make after the initial preparation as all you need to do is stock it into your freezer and steam when hungry. Its tasty, soft and juicy texture makes it a popular choice for children and chicken lovers.

Chicken Siomai


Pan – Sear:  (Time: 5- 7 minutes)

  • Heat up a nonstick pan on medium heat, let it heat for a couple of minutes.
  • Add 2-3 oz of water to the pan to coat the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the frozen chicken siomai cover and cook until most of the water is absorbed
  • Reduce heat and add ½ oz of corn or sesame oil, cover and let simmer 3-4 minutes until golden brown – turning once to brown two sides.
  • NOTE: DO NOT add so much water that the siomai are submerged in it. There only needs to be enough water to cover the bottom of the pan to steam the siomai.
  • Once cooked, remove carefully onto a paper towel with a slotted spoon.

Deep Fry:  (Time: 2-3 minutes)

  • Place a deep-frying pan on medium heat. Add enough oil to completely submerge the siomai.
  • Heat oil to 180°C.
  • Once the oil is hot, slide the frozen chicken siomai in gently, one by one, into the oil. Gently stir and turn them over occasionally until it is golden-brown on all sides. This process usually takes about 2 -3 minutes from the time the oil gets hot.
  • Once cooked, remove carefully onto a paper towel with a slotted spoon.

Steam:  (Time: 10-15 minutes)

  • Lightly coat/ spray some oil on a metal steam rack, line the rack with parchment paper (optional) or if you have a bamboo steamer that is best.
  • Place in a pot of boiling water, but do not submerge the rack or steamer.
  • Arrange the frozen chicken siomai in a single layer about 1/4-inch apart on the lightly greased steamer basket and steam for about 10 to 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Once cooked, remove carefully onto a plate with the help of tongs.

Soup:  (Time: 5 -7 minutes)

  • Place a pot on medium heat. Add enough water to completely submerge the siomai.
  • Once the water is boiling, slide the frozen chicken siomai in gently, one by one, into the boiling water.
  • Cook for 3 minutes on high heat and then immediately reduce heat to medium for 2 minutes more. Gently stir them over occasionally.
  • You can now add this to your favorite soup base with garnishes and serve.

*Cook all chicken Siomai to an internal temperature of 78°C *
