Black Chicken Soup

Friday, May 14, 2010

Harap maaf. Dapur masak dan periuk itu berumur lebih tua dari saya. Dan saya x pandai ambil gambar.

Oh ya, I forgot to take a picture of the chicken soup nicely served in a bowl because I was too hungry. Sorry.
And I don't actually know the real name of the soup, n neither do my mum. So the name black chicken soup tu is totally fabricated. Hehe.

To marinate
  • Half a chicken
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp of oyster sauce
  • Soy sauce (ermm..about 1/2 cup kot. Pandai2 la bajet)
For the soup
  • 4-6 Potatoes (depends on the size)
  • Huāgū mushroom (or flower mushroom. You can also use the other kind of shiitake mushroom if u like,dōnggū)
  • Ginger (about 1 inch long). Thinly sliced.
  • 2 cloves of garlic (smashed with the skin on)

  1. Marinate the chicken with the pepper, oyster sauce and soy sauce.
  2. In a pot, combine all the ingredients, along with the soy sauce and all.
  3. Add in some water until the pot is full, and then cook until the liquid is reduced to 3/4 or half of the pot. Or until the meat is tender.
  4. Eat with rice or on it's own. If u like it hot, eat it with cili padi. Yum! :)
