The refined cooking way and special ingredients of Steam-pot Chicken, contribute to its distinctive taste. And the fresh and tender chicken, delicious soup and pervasive aroma, make it an unforgettable delicacy. 

The Steam-pot Chicken is usually cooked in Jianshui Pottery steamer to ensure the authentic taste: with a simple look but unusual shape, the steam-pot is round bellied and piped inside to conduct the steam which condenses on the roof of the cover, then drip down to become the chicken soup. 

As the cooking liquor is condensed from steam, very little delicate flavor of chicken is lost in the steaming process, so its natural flavor is basically maintained, the chicken is tender, and the soup is clear and delicious, making it widely praised by eaters.
