Spring Chicken in Chinese Herb

Whenever I am at the Chinese Medical Hall buying chinese herb, I just point out to what I want instead of telling them what I want. My mom has been recite the names one hundred and one time but I still can’t remember their names. Maybe only 50% of the common herbs that I buy.

Bear with me on some missing names in the ingredients.


Wild Wolfberries (Kei ji)
Red Dates
Angelica Root (Dang Kui)
Astraglus Root (Dunno name in chinese)
Fragrant Solomonseal Rhizone
(Dunno name in chinese)
Pilose Asiabell Roots (Dang Shen)
Spring Chicken
Dilute seasoning in hot water


Place all the ingredients above in aluminium foil and steam for at least 2 to 3 hours.

    Hey, this is my favorite. Cooked it the other day and my girl said “Mmm.. I like this chinese chicken.” Then later when had dinner with my brother, she told what a good cook mommy was. My brother of course didn’t believe her. But she said, “yes, Mommy’s chinese chicken very good.” Hahahaha.
