2 teaspoons rice vinegar

Place a steamer basket in the bottom of a large stockpot. Pour in equal amounts of chicken stock and water, enough to reach the bottom of the steamer basket. Add piece of ginger. Bring to a boil.

Generously salt the chicken inside and out; set breast side up in the steamer basket. Reduce the heat to low and cover. Steam the chicken, about 1 hour. Turn off the heat and allow to cool for about 20 minutes.
