How to make it

  • Blanch chicken in boiling water for 5 minutes (so that you are rid of the icky small bits). Set aside.
  • Place water, watercress stems, carrots, red dates and short american ginseng in pot and bring to a boil. Add the previously blanched chicken, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes.
  • Add watercress leaves and wolfberries. Continue boiling for 10-15 minutes*.
  • Season with salt if needed.
  • * Watercress leaves are added later so that they stay crunchy. If you prefer them soft or don’t intend to eat the watercress, you can place it together with the other ingredients in step 2.
  • *Wolfberries are added later so that they stay firm and will not burst.
