Chicken Herbal Soup.

Besides peace, love and music, a late baby boomer like me, do believe in traditional healthy invigorating soup to revitalize my aging body.

The most common and easiest of soup to boil is Chicken Herbal Soup.
It's a delicious soup for both young and old.
You can double boiled it for extra "strength", flavor and to increase blood circulation.

The ingredients are:
Chicken drumsticks/thigh-clean and blanch.
Basic herbs from Chinese medicine shop-soak in water for about 5 minutes.
8 dried scallop-clean.
handful of wolfberries/red dates.
2 liters of RO water.

Add boiled RO water into porcelain bowl-add in all the ingredients-cover it-place it in a steamer on high heat for 30 minutes-and reduce to low heat and let it cook for another 2 hours-ready to serve .

A nourishing tonic soup-eat the chicken meat with light soy sauce-tasty.

smallkucing-to get rid of the smell-if it's too oily you can discard the skin.
