Foil-Wrapped Ginseng Chicken


Get this recipe on the next page >>

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, has ‘cooling’ properties (降火), & keeps one more alert (提神) among the host of its known benefits.

You can purchase this particular ginseng in Singapore at traditional neighbourhood Chinese medical halls or the ones at the shopping centers such as Fuhua (where I bought a 150g packet for S$5.50).
