Herbal Chicken Rice ~ 药材鸡饭

I cooked this simple Herbal Chicken Rice during one of the days of the Lock Down.  I have a penchant for Chinese herbal food, be it herbal soup or herbal chicken.  This is a very simple recipe and doesn't call for a lot of ingredients and I'm sure most of you will be able to prepare this for your family.



Herbal Chicken Rice  ~  药材鸡饭 
Ingredients
  • 450 gm whole chicken leg, chopped
  • 1/2 cup rice
  • Chinese cooking wine
  • Light soya sauce
Seasoning for chicken 
  • 3 pieces Tong Kwai (Chinese Angelica Root)
  • 3 pieces Pak Kei (Astragalus Root)
  • Salt
  • Light soya sauce

Black Bean Sauce Chicken ~ 黑豆酱鸡

  This is an easy peasy chicken dish to whip up in the kitchen which can pair well with plain white rice or plain congee.  Ingredients are not complicated and mostly available in the kitchen, but it's best to season the chicken first before stir frying them.

Simmer till chicken is cooked and tender. Add in the sliced carrot and onion wedges.  Fine tune to taste with a bit of sugar. Toss in the chopped chilli. Dish up to serve.
