Best known for its medicinal properties, Samgyetang (ginseng chicken soup) is the hallmark of Korean cuisine. Healthy soup based dish commonly served in summer.

Korean Samgyetang (Sam Gye Tang) Recipe

(serves 4)



1 (2½ pounds) fresh whole chicken

½ cup glutinous rice grains

4 small ginseng roots (you can also use about 1 tablespoon red ginseng powder, which is available in Korean grocery stores locally or online)

4 cloves garlic, skin removed

4 dried Chinese red dates, pitted

4 dried chestnuts, peeled

8 cups water

2 stalks spring onion, finely minced

a small knob fresh ginger root, skin removed and sliced thinly

salt and ground white pepper to taste



How to make Korean ginseng chicken soup:

1. Wash the glutinous rice and soak for about 25-30 minutes. Drain; set aside.


2. Clean the chicken thoroughly. With a pair of sharp scissors, trim off as much fat as you can. Rinse, drain and pat dry with kitchen paper towels.


3. To make the ginseng chicken stuffing, mix glutinous rice with ginseng roots, garlic, red dates and chestnuts in a large bowl.


4. Using a spoon, stuff this mixture into the chicken cavity. Sew up the opening with kitchen thread.


5. Place water in a large soup pot; add chicken. Make sure that the chicken is completely covered with water.


6. Throw in the spring onion and ginger. Cover your soup pot and bring it to a boil over high heat.


7. Bring the heat to low, and let sam gye tang simmer for about 50-60 minutes, or until the chicken is tender. Remember to keep the lid on throughout the cooking process.


8.  Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste. Turn off heat; skim off any fat that floats on the surface.


9. Transfer chicken along with its broth to a large soup tureen.


10. Remove thread and spoon cooked glutinous rice mixture into 4 individual bowls. Divide chicken meat equally, and ladle hot soup over. Serve immediately.
