Chinese Chicken Soup

Recipe by
Prep: 30 | Cook: 60 | Servings: 2


  • Half a chicken (old hen)
  • 7 g salt
  • 600 g water


  1. First we need to prepare chicken meat, in this time, we only use old hen for this dish.
  2. Wash raw chicken before cooking it and dry up with kitchen towel.
  3. Prepare 2 g fine salt. Sprinkle the salt on the chicken, rubbing it with your fingers over all its skin and into its cavity.
  4. Don’t sprinkle any salt on the chicken meat, only on its skin.
  5. When you finish the last step, put the chicken into the fridge for 20 minutes.
  6. After 20 minutes, get the chicken out of the fridge and cut it into small pieces. (if you don’t want to cut, that’s ok as well.)
  7. Put the chicken into a casserole and add 600 g water.
  8. Cover the casserole with a tight-fitting lid. Put the casserole into a bigger saucepan and add some water into the saucepan. Turn the stove to a medium-high temperature. Steam for 30 minutes.
  9. After 30 minutes, add 5 g salt into the casserole. Then cover with the lid, and turn the stove to a medium temperature, steam another 20 minutes. After that, serve hot.
