Herbal chicken is good for everyone. This is a simple home-cooked version of the Chinese herbal chicken. Buying the herbs individually is definitely more economical than buying the pre-packaged mixes.


1 small kampong chicken
1 tbsp wolfberries (Kei chi)
4-5 pieces yok chok
Salt, soy sauce and pepper to taste
Aluminium Foil


1. Season the chicken with the salt, soy sauce and a dash of pepper.
2. Pull out a length of aluminium foil which is long enough for you to wrap the chicken.
3. Place the chicken on the foil together with kei chi and yok chok on top of the chicken and wrap it carefully.
4. Heat up a wok or steamer with water and place the wrapped chicken on the steamer
5. Steam for 45 minutes to 1 hour to ensure it cooks thoroughly and is tender.

Be careful when opening the aluminum foil as the liquid will ooze out and its hot! The chicken essence is sweet and very delicious because of the flavour of the herbs and chicken in it.
This steamed herbal chicken can be served with hot rice or just take it as a herbal soup to regain your energy.
