How to make Samgyetang:

1. Wash the chicken (including the cavity) thoroughly under cold running water.

2. Stuff the chicken cavity with sweet rice, Dried red dates, goji berry, lotus seeds and pine nuts.

Cross the chicken legs and tie them with a cotton tie. Alternatively, you can make a slit on one

side of the chicken thigh skin and put the other leg through it. (It sounds difficult but it’s not!) This

is to minimize the stuffed ingredients falling out.

3. In a pot, pour all the water with soaked shiitake mushroom and kombu, sliced ginger, garlic

cloves and ginseng and bring to boil.

4. Turn off the heat and add the stuffed Chicken, sake and salt. Add water until it covers the


5. Boil the pot over medium high heat, covered, for 20 mins. Reduce the heat to medium to

medium low and boil further until the chicken is fully cooked (about 30 mins further). Also, make

sure the stuffed sweet rice is fully cooked.

4. Transfer the chicken and the soup into a serving bowl. Garnish with green onions and serve.

You can dip your chicken pieces into the sauce or add to your soup as desired.


Bon appetit!
