Double boiled chicken soup with dried oyster and mushroom ~ 冬菇蚝豉炖鸡汤

 

Double boiled soup is very nutritious and there are many recipes for this kind of soup.  But very often the key ingredient for this kind of soup is chicken, be it free range or black chicken.  Some double-boiled soups that you enjoy in restaurants are herb-infused.  This time around I made this very simple yet flavouful soup with free-range chicken, dried oysters, mushrooms, seedless red dates, dried longan and wolfberries and I served this with misua.  You can opt to cook this in a slow cooker or in a double boiler pot for 2.1/2 to 3 hours on low heat.
