HEALTH BENEFITS OF CHINESE HERBS
烏雞 Silkie Chicken – What is a Silkie, Silky or Chinese Silk Chicken? It is a plumage with a white fluffy silk and satin feathers but with black skin and bones!
Similar to squab, silkie chickens contains high nutritional value, low-fat and many essential amino acids. It can alleviate the human deficiency of Qi and blood. Silkie chicken is good for the liver and kidney, the vitality of skin cells, improve memory, reduce blood pressure, improve skin elasticity and longevity. Its amino acids and arginine can promote protein synthesis, accelerate wound healing. It is recommended especially for women, post menstrual cycle, postpartum and after a miscarriage.

Individuals with spleen deficient 脾虚 will find improvements in their digestive system. It promotes urination and inhibit gastric cleansing properties. Huai Shan targets kidney, lung, and spleen channels 腎﹐肺﹐脾. It can also help to reduce blood sugar and blood pressure, improves antibodies, is anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and improves vitality.
花膠 Fish Maw – Sweet and neutral in nature. It targets the liver and kidney meridian and has the effect of moisturizing and nourishing skin, Yin and the internal organs. Fish Maw is high in protein, rich in collagen and improves vitality.
响螺 (香螺肉/田螺肉) Conch – Conch is nutritious and rich in Vitamin A, protein, iron and calcium. It improves the Qi, treats jaundice, clears away ‘heat’ and improves eye sight.
枸杞子/ Goji Berries (Lycium Chinense) – In TCM, the Goji Berry is typically used to nourish the blood, tonifies the Yin by entering the kidney and liver channels. This wonderful tonic herb promotes longevity, anti-ageing, brightens the eyes and moistens the lungs. Goji berries help treat anemia insomnia, tinnitus, diabetes and impaired vision such as glaucoma.

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!
