Steamed Chicken Thigh and Veggies Guisado

It feels like it's been so long and I have missed a lot of things here. Maybe I was gone for a couple of days but one thing for sure--the thing that I have been missing to share with you guys here is food.

These couple of months, me and my sister decided not to use some ready made seasoning because of MSG. In fact, there are lots of fresh seasoning available that sometimes we need to discover. More healthier that add lots of flavor and aroma to the food and my favorite is....tan tana nan...fennel seed. Fennel seed looks-like rice grain or anise, but it is just smaller. Dried fennel seed is an aromatic, anise-flavored spice, brown or green in color when fresh, slowly turning a dull grey as the seed ages. You can actually use it like rosemary and just put it in any kind of meat or fish as seasoning.

This is steamed Chicken Thigh with fennel seed, black pepper, crush garlic and some salt.

The combination of those seasoning really gives an amazing flavor and aroma for these steamed chicken. This is one healthy dish that you might wanna try. Simple and healthy. Sometimes steaming your food is the best thing to do than frying. Why? Because first--less oil, less fat and second it is juicier and tender when you eat.

Of course, we always want healthy stuff, right?

Since, we already have healthy chicken and to make it healthier dish lets add veggies. Well, you can't go wrong with green and orange vegetables plus red. Cabbage, carrots and bell pepper--healthy veggies that fights sickness and diseases. As we all known, October is "breast cancer awareness month". So, I encourage you to stay fit and healthy by eating great stuff and moderating the not so good stuff. Have a Picture Perfect day everyone!

And thanks folks for stopping by until next time...See yah! :)
