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).
First marinade the chicken with ginseng & seasonings for at least half hour.
Prepare a large sheet of foil. Place ginseng & aromatics & a few shiitake mushrooms at the bottom.
Place boneless chicken on top and top with rest of the ingredients & sauce.
Wrap the foil packets.
Steam and serve.
