Steamed Herbal Chicken 蒸药材鸡

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This Steamed Herbal Chicken is very easy to prepare and the meat is tender and delicious. All I did was to add some seasoning with dang gui  (当归), black fungus, goji berries and red dates. It is a very simple, flavourful and healthy dish packed with nutrients and most Chinese families like to cook this at home.

  • Here are the health benefits in the dish
  • Dangui (当归-Angelica roots), is one of the most commonly used herbs in the Chinese herbal systems and supports healthy blood circulation.
  • Black fungus or cloud ear is popularly used as a culinary ingredient used in Chinese kitchen or restaurant. It can be stewed, stir fried or steamed.
  • Goji berry or wolfberry used to treat eye, blood sugar stabilizing, anti-ageing, etc.
  • Red dates can strengthen the spleen which helps to digest food, tonify blood and calm the mind.
