Double boiled chicken and scallop soup


This double boiled free-range chicken soup is just what we need in this hot and humid weather.  Free-range chicken or 'kampung chicken' are much sought after as a healthier option to farm chicken.   They are gaining popularity among consumers as they are fed on natural vegetation and not administered any form of hormone injection.  As such, their meat is more lean in texture and tastes better.  Also free-range chicken has less fat, hence it's very suitable for soups, porridge, curry, etc.




A very refreshing and nutritious soup to go with rice, rice vermicelli or even noodles.

Recipe for Doube boiled chicken and scallop soup

Ingredients
  • 450 gm free-range chicken cut into fairly big pieces
  • 380 gm Chinese cabbage, washed and cut
  • 40 gm dried scallops, about 6 pieces

Preparation

  1. That's a healthy and expensive soup. I can't even find the dry scallops here. The fresh ones are also very expensive.

  4. I know this soup is very very delicious. Other than good quality free range chicken you have got, there are also Chinese cabbage and dried scallops which will make the soup exceptionally tasty. 鲜!

    I like clear soup. If you don't have a double boiler, you can use a slow cooker.

Chicken Floss Cake ~ 鸡肉松蛋糕

It's normal to find buns coated with meat floss in any bakery, but yet to find a meat floss coated piece of cake.  I saw this Chicken Floss Cake on youtube and was eager to give this a shot.  The recipe is quite similar to a chiffon cake and I was curious to find out the taste which should be slightly sweetish and saltish.  Wouldn't it be weird, I wonder.  But it turned out that the taste is rather unique with a light and soft texture and my family members gave me a thumbs up and asked for more!
