Chicken Ginseng Soup

Looking for something to warm you up during the winter or keep you active?

Chicken Ginseng Soup is one of the best choices to have when you're feeling unwell or cold during the winter. What makes Chicken Ginseng Soup so different than other chicken soups? Ginseng is a common Chinese herb that is used as an energy boost and is believed to help with cognitive skills.


  • In a rice cooker, pour 2 cups of water.

  • Clean the chicken with some water.

  • Rub the entire chicken with roughly 2 tsp of salt.

  • Set the chicken aside and use water to clean the ginseng.

  • Then, use a mallet or the back of a knife to crush the ginseng (this is to let the aromatics out)

  • Inside the pot, put a layer of ginseng on the bottom and some inside the chicken itself.

  • Pour 7 cups of water inside the pot, but DON’T pour the water directly on the chicken.

  • Add roughly 45g of rock sugar (more or less depending on preference)

  • Let it cook for at least 1hr.

  • Later, add 30mL vegetable broth (more or less depending on preference)

  • Optional: if you would like to have a deep ginseng flavor, let it cook for another hour


Unfortunately, on Cronometer, the website doesn’t recognize such ingredients used, so I can’t really give the same nutrition label as I have given before. However, doing some comparison with other recipes and research, the total calories are roughly 180 Cal depending on if you choose to consume the soup only or with a couple of pieces of chicken.

Chicken Ginseng Soup is typically a “high-protein, low sodium, and moderate-cholesterol dish." As mentioned before, ginseng is commonly used as an energy booster, and the B Vitamins and Zinc from the chicken can improve immunity.
