How to Make Natural Chicken Essence – Recipe for health

Chicken essence is good for people who are weak because one bowl of it contains all the goodness from one chicken. Many pregnant mothers who had difficulties during their pregnancies have benefited from this wonderful chicken essence soup. My mom thought me how to make chicken essence when my wife was pregnant with our first child. Now, I would make chicken essence occasionally for my family. It provides my kids with extra nutrition during their growing years. It is actually not very difficult to make chicken essence; you just need some time to cook it over slow fire. Ingredients Chicken (preferably free range kampung (village) chicken), 1 whole, removes skin

Clean chicken and make a cut along the breast area. Use a pestle to smash all the bones so that all the nutrition from the bone marrow would flow out when the chicken is cooked. Place a rice bowl upside down in a porcelain pot. Put the chicken on top of the rice bowl. Cover up the porcelain pot and put in a metal pot filled with water for double boiling. Cover up the metal pot and double steam (dan, 炖) for 3 hours. The chicken essence would flow into the rice bowl. Serve while still hot. The chicken meat would be tasteless but you can use it to make bak hu (meat floss) I didn’t manage to take a picture of the pure chicken essence because my kids drank all of it before I could do so! Sweet and nice! This is Pete's Essence of Chicken!LOL!
