- 10-15 ginseng roots
- 30g dried Chinese yam
- 10 jujube dates
- 1/2 cup goji berries
- 8 cups water
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Rinse the chicken and remove any excess fat. Soak the ginseng roots in water for about 30 minutes to soften them.
- In a large pot, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the chicken, ginseng roots, dried Chinese yam, jujube dates, and goji berries.
- Bring the soup to a boil again, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 2 hours, or until the chicken is tender and fully cooked.
- Remove the chicken from the pot and transfer it to a cutting board. Let it cool slightly, then cut it into serving pieces.
- Strain the soup through a fine-mesh strainer into a clean pot. Discard the solids.
- Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the chicken pieces with the hot ginseng soup, and enjoy the nourishing benefits of Chinese yam, jujube, and goji berries.
