Steamed Chicken with Shiitake Mushrooms and Tofu

We are currently on a mission – to lose weight…well, at least we are both trying to. The wild boar was horrified when he weighed himself after 2 months of binge eating in Malaysia. The first thing he told me after stepping down of the scale was “We will be eating steam chicken everyday from now.”. I try to cook healthily on weekdays now and reward our stomachs on weekends.
