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.

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

  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.

Wool Roll Bread ~ 毛线球面包

  Wool Roll Bread ... its popularity is booming and bursting the seams of Facebook and Instagram.  Every day you see new posts of it, with different ways of making it as well as an endless assortment of fillings to experiment with.  I too have been browsing the internet to research these various methods and their outcomes.  What is it that makes Wool Woll Bread so crazily popular?  To satisfy my curiosity, I tried my hand at making it and was very happy with the results.  I love seeing the bread strands when I pull apart the bread to reveal the meat floss filling and I enjoy how soft and chewy the bread is.  Jump on the bandwagon, folks, you won't regret it!
