Chicken with burdock soup

Recently the weather is so warm that everyone tend to drink more liquid to curb the heat, so boil some soup to clear the body heat else will fall sick sooner or later. Found this recipe in an old issue of Oriental magazine but instead of stew I boiled the soup.



Ingredients:

1 stick burdock
1/2 bird chicken
2 carrot
salt to taste

Method:
1. Chop chicken into big pieces and blanch in boiling water.

2. Peel burdock under running tap water then cut into wedges and soak in water. Peel carrot and cut into wedges.

3. Put all ingredients into soup pot, pour in enough water to cover the ingredients (about 2 litre) and bring to boil over high heat, then turn to weak fire and boil for another 1 and half hour. Add salt to taste.

Thanks Joy,

Original recipe added some chinese dried mushroom but i left it out cos my kids don't like the smell with mushroom added to soups, I also added some wolfberries its helps to improve eye vision.
