HOW TO MAKE STEWED SILKIE CHICKEN SOUP
You can purchase whole Silkie Chicken at your local Asian supermarket, either fresh or previously frozen. Remember to wash and remove the inners, head and tail. If there are any leftover feathers, pluck those too! You may choose to remove the skin as well for a healthier option for less oil.
Wash and rinse the Chinese herbs. I also recommend soaking the herbs in water for at least 20 mins to remove any sulfur used during the sulfur fumigation process (replacing traditional sun-drying for its pesticidal and anti-bacterial properties.) Just in case.
In a pot of boiling water, blanch the silkie chicken and pork tenderloin to remove impurities for about 5 minutes. Then rinse under cold water.
Place all your ingredients in a 1 L stewing pot. I like to use an electric stewing pot to keep the nutrition and original taste of food without checking the stove. I can even go take a nap!
Add approximately 1L of water (or appropriate amount, so it does not overflow).
In medium heat, stew for 3.0 hours. Longer if you want a more intense flavour.
Add a dash of salt approximately 10 minutes before consuming.
Serve and enjoy!

Interesting recipe. Must try it!
I learned a lot about ingredients I never even knew existed in this recipe - thanks! I now know what to look for and where. This sounds so incredibly healthy - can't wait to make it!
So glad i've made it helpful!
I love soups and I'm always looking for different recipes. This one looks absolutely delicious. Never heard of silkie chicken until now and can't wait to make this and enjoy.
I could just live off soup I required. It is so nutritious and low in calories!
This post is exactly why I don't get people who 'just want the recipe'. I have heard of a few of these ingredients such as the goji berries and cordyceps but silkie chicken is completely new. You did an awesome job of breaking all of these ingredients down and explaining thoroughly which is so useful for newcomers to Chinese cooking. Thanks so much!
Thanks Sharon - I'm so glad it was helpful to you and hopefully others gets to know the ingredients that are foreign to them. Especially when used in TCM, it is so important to find ingredients that are a match to your body constituents! Have a lovely day!
Such a great recipe, the flavours come together so beautifully. I would never have attempted something like this without your recipe. Thank you so much for inspiring me to try new things!
Thanks Kristen - you are the reason why it inspires me to continue blogging as well!
I loved learning about all the health benefits of the ingredients! Such a healthy soup!
This soup is perfect for women's health!
Bernice Hill says
Very interesting! I saw silkie chickens at T&T the other day and I was wondering how they were eaten. They are so small, soup is definitely #1 way. Thanks for all the interesting background info. PS are they always sold with the innards still there? That's not my favourite job but I will if I have to.
Most are sold without the innards. So I think you are safe! I'm already not liking to remove the head and tail part 🙂 But because they are so nutritious - I will tolerate it hahaa. Hope you like it!!
