Double Boiled Polygonum And Chicken

Polygonum soup helps to strengthen the body, cure insomnia, dizziness and early grey hair.


20 gr polygonum
10 gr sliced dong gui
10 dried longan
10 red dates
1 black chicken

Salt to taste
2 Tbs Shao Shing Wine


1. Put (A) in stewing pot. Pour in 1/5 L of hot water.
2. Put stewing pot into a double boiler.
3. Cover and double boil for 3 hrs. Stir in (B) and serve hot.

NOTE: I think it is easier to just use a heat proof bowl inside a steamer than follow the book's method.
