Ginseng Chicken Soup (人参鸡汤)

Ginseng Chicken Soup

T has been craving about this soup since he tasted it at my mom's place during Chinese New Year. I realized that he liked my mom's cooking quite a lot and often asked for dishes she cooked after we got back from my mom's place. Maybe I should learn from my master more...

Ginseng Chicken Soup

I like to use chicken feet in this kind of slow-cooked soup, for its collagen. However, you have my permission to omit it. Before scrolling down to check my recipe, I would like to share with you guys an interesting article - 13 Health Benefits of Ginseng & How It Helps in Weight Loss. It is mentioned in the article that the Ginseng can be grown from seeds. How interesting!

Ingredients (2-3 servings):

  • 300g free-range chicken, chopped
  • 10g ginseng slices
  • 500ml hot water
  • 3-4 red dates
  • 1 tbsp wolf berries
  • Salt to taste
  • Chopped scallion for garnish


  1. Put everything except the salt and scallion in a slow-cooker, cook on the auto mode for 3-4 hours. Sometimes I cooked it overnight on the low mode, with a bit more water.
  2. Add in salt to taste and garnish if desired. Serve warm.
