Black Chicken with Angelica Sinensis Soup
1 Black Chicken, washed and cleaned
Approxiately 27g Angelica Sinensis 当归(DangGui)
15g Wolfberries 枸杞子(GouQiZi)
6 Black Dates 黑枣 (HeiZao）
2 litre Water

How to make Black Chicken with Angelica Sinensis Soup
Place all ingredients except wine and salt in a pot.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking for 3 hours.
Add wine and salt to taste.
A better way to cook this will be double-boiling which ensure the essences from all the ingredients are not loss through cooking but it will take much longer to cook. Expect at least 5 hours! And you have to keep check on the water.
