Foil-Wrapped Ginseng Chicken

Get this recipe on the next page >>

Steamed ginseng chicken wrapped in foil is a simple wrap and cook dinner solution. This is a very healthy and convenient recipe. The ginseng I am using is called american ginseng fiber (洋参须). It is an inexpensive type of american ginseng, has ‘cooling’ properties (降火), & keeps one more alert (提神) among the host of its known benefits.

You can purchase this particular ginseng in Singapore at traditional neighbourhood Chinese medical halls or the ones at the shopping centers such as Fuhua (where I bought a 150g packet for S$5.50).

    The chicken must be very tender after steaming with the marinade. It looks fantastic!

    This is one of my favourite…… easy to prepare and the results are superb. I usually use whole kampong chicken with ginseng and other herbs stuffed in the chicken cavity and slow cooked it. All except my daughter doesn’t really like the ” bitterness ” of the soup. I personally love the ” natural bitterness ” as I find it very soothing.By adding more red dates & wolfberries and dried scallops can add sweetness and cut down the bitterness :lol:
