This Spring chicken soup has medicinal quality in Korea and specially eat during the very hot Summer, because Koreans believe Heat has to be treated by Heat. It is very oriental way of thinking. This soup is good for the energy boosting , having very long hot, humid Summer in Korea, time to time, we need this kind of highly nutritious soup to boost our energy. I found it's much easier to make this soup in UK because baby chicken is widely available all year around.
1. Clean the chicken and remove excess fat and dry with kitchen tissue.rice and soak in the water at least 1 hour, drain and leave for 20 minutes.
4. This is a main meal, usually 1 chicken per person, cut off meat with spoon and mix with sticky rice form the cavity, season with salt and pepper, add chopped spring onion. Samgyetang is a non spicy soup., with garlicky ,light ginseng flavour ,it is truly energy boosting soup!, Also very heart warming soup.
This soup is a perfect meal for not only hot and humid, tiring Korean Summer but anywhere or any season., I think !
