This recipe was kindly provided by SallyTemple.com.

Here's the story behind this recipe: "I used to make this soup when I was in university. It's easy to make and it's tasty. One pot of this soup could last a day. It was my best buddy during the exam periods. This dish also uses some gentle Chinese herbal ingredients, which is good for your health."

Ingredients

  • Half a Chicken (cut out/reserve the chicken meat for other dishes, we mainly just need the bones to flavour the soup)
  • 2 sweet corn cobs
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 tablespoon of Longan pulp (桂圆肉)
  • 3 Dangshen (党参)
  • 1 tablespoon of wolfberries (杞子)
  • 3 Chinese yam (准山)
  • 1 tablespoon of south almond (南杏)
  • A pinch of salt


Method

Pour hot water onto the raw chicken to freshen up the chicken, and get rid of the raw smell:


Peel and chop the carrots into large pieces. Wash the sweet corn and Chinese herbal ingredients by rinsing briefly. Add all the ingredients into the pot:



Add water into the pot to double the volume of the ingredients:



Stove cook in medium to low heat for 1.5 hours / Pressure cook for 20 minutes:



Add a pinch of salt, and it's ready to eat, enjoy!



Note:

  • We mainly need the chicken bones for the taste, therefore we can keep the meat for other dishes.
  • The Chinese herbal ingredients we use here are gentle and are often used in Chinese cuisine.
