Weekend Menu # 59: Warming chicken soup

School holiday is over and tomorrow kids are going back to schools. It has been a relaxing holiday for me after back from Thailand a week ago as both older kids were holidaying in Kapit with their grandparents. Since both kids were not around, I have tv all to myself. Lol.

And I hardly cooked for the past week. Like what hubby said, kitchen was closed. Now the kids are at home, I have to start cooking again. I actually prefer to eat in than bringing them out for meals. Less headache. 

I have a pack of this ning shen soup pack from Eu Yan Sang when I got it for my gift hamper.  Hubby asked me to cook some chicken soup few days ago, so I decided to use this pack for my chicken soup.




The herbs are ready packed, so basically just throw everything and thawed chicken meat into slow cooker.  Cook for 2 -3 hours and then add light soy sauce and salt to taste.



And I have a very nice, sweet herbal chicken soup for everyone.  Suppose to be for body warming and good for the heart function.

More healthy to eat at home than outside food. The soup looks great, Rose!

Ginseng is cooling leh... Warming, kacang ma - lots of ginger or the Foochow char bee lau (fragrant root). But weather so hot, should not take those "heaty" stuff.

weather so hot but inside got aircond... hehe. I love herbal chicken soup! so easy to make too. I normally just use the store bought packet that costs between RM7-RM8. Never tried Eu Yan Sang, but that packaging looks nice. You ever tried using kampung chicken? would taste even better! Have a good week ahead Rose! :)
