I love Chinese herbs. I will happily breathe in the pleasant herbal aroma whenever I walk pass Chinese medical halls. And I especially love the taste of dang gui. Some people may say it’s not the best herb around because it is considered “heaty”, but I think everything is fine in moderation. Just avoid dang gui during ‘that time of the month’ and drink more water after consuming it.

This is a simple home-cooked version of the Chinese herbal chicken. Buying the herbs individually is definitely more economical than buying the pre-packaged mixes, and you can always experiment using the leftover herbs for other soups and dishes.

      Hi kc, there is already light soy sauce in the recipe hence no salt, but if you like to add salt to season, feel free to do so.

    Good stuff! wanna ask how come the thighs are wrapped separately? will take longer if put 2 thighs in a foil wrap?


    • wiffy replied: — November 26th, 2014 @ 2:42 pm

      They are easier to wrap singly, and also one thigh is convenient for personal serving. You can wrap 2 thighs in one foil if you prefer. Cooking time will still be same if you arrange them a flat layer.

    is it safe to eat food steam on aluminium foil for such of long time?

      Line the foil with silicon baking paper (not wax paper) if you are worried.
