ATTENTION: Pretty mommies out there!!! Let me introduce to all of you this very nutricious, delicious, easy and simple dish. When I first visit a Chinese Acurpunture Master few years ago, I got introduce to this dish by him. When I first saw his 63 years old wife at his home that time. I was wondering how she could maintained her good health and beautiful skin, she doesn't look like a 60 years old lady at all. Her face are free of wrinkles and freckles. Her face and neck look so firm and both her cheeks are rosy red in colour. I asked him half jokingly "Wow, what your wife eat, she look so young & pretty???" He smiled and tell me, "It's easy, let me teach you a simple recipe and my wife cook this most of the time" .... that's this simple & easy Double-Boiled D.O.M Chicken☻.
Recipe for this Double-Boiled D.O.M Chicken:
2 big chicken drumsticks
3 tbsp D.O.M liquor
1 tbsp ginger juice
5 tbsp water (optional, I prefer it to have some soup to go with white rice)
1 tbsp wolfberries
10 red dates
1/2 tsp sesame oil
pinch of salt
* I measured the ingredients with the spoon we normally use for drinking soup-bigger size one*
Ways to prepare it:
Remove all the fat you can see on drumsticks and raise it to clean with water.
Place the chicken drumsticks into the double-boil pot.
Add in ginger juice, D.O.M, water, sesame oil.
Raise the wolfberries and red dates before add into the pot.
Cover the pot and cook the chicken on high heat until the water at the lower layer of the double boiler are boiling.
Lower down the heat and continue to cook for about 40 minutes.
Switch off the fire and place the chicken drumsticks on a bowl.
Stir in some salt into the chicken soup and pour the soup onto the drumsticks.
Serve hot with or without rice.
Notes: We can always use the whole chicken for this dishes. Just double or triple the ingredients used and it's all depend on the size of the chicken. Children too can take this, as the alchohol's content have reduced after we cook them. It's delicious!! ~☻
