Foil-Wrapped Ginseng Chicken

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 touted with ‘cooling’ (降火) & mental-clarifying (提神) benefits.

You can purchase this particular ginseng in Singapore at traditional Chinese medical hall or supermarkets (I bought a 150g packet at Fuhua for S$5.50).

  1. 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:

  2. Hi Pearlyn, great idea to add dried scallops. I will try out your version one day :-)
