Steamed Chicken w/ Mushrooms

Mom got this recipe from the Del Monte Fruitful Celebrations
booklet. I was hesitant at first because I don't' like cooked
pineapples. But she convinced and I'm glad she did.

Steamed Chicken with Mushrooms

3/4 kg chicken thigh and leg
20 g dried shitake mushrooms, soaked and sliced
1/4 cup tenga ng daga (Auricularia polytricha), soaked and sliced
1 stalk leek,sliced
1 large red bell pepper, cut into cubes
1 tbsp ginger strips
1 can (234g) Del Monte Fresh Cut Sliced Pineapple
banana leaf

1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
3/4 tsp iodized fine salt
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp liquid seasoning

Marinade chicken for 15 minutes. Layer a heat proof plate/dish with
banana leaf. Arrange chicken including marinade.Add Del Monte Fresh
Cut Sliced Pineapple with syrup and remaining ingredients except leeks.

Steam for 45 minutes. Add Leeks. Steam for 2 more minutes. Serve.
