Chicken Soup with Peanuts...

May 27, 2010

Chicken soup for the soul? Try this Chinese version of chicken soup.

This soup is simple to make... just need to buy an old chook (remember...its not for the the meat will turn out dry and hard..), put all the ingredients (which is not a lot!!) in a slow cooker. The broth is sweet and refreshing.. good for the cold winter and rainy days ...

  • 1 whole chicken -preferably layers or broil or ayam pencen
  • 500g raw peanuts with skin on - washed and soaked for few hours or overnight
  • 4 cm whole ginger
  • 4 cups of water (or more if prefer)
Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker with enough water to cover the chicken. Cook for 4 hours on High or 6 hours on Low. Seasoned with salt.


  1. My mum cooks something similar too...and she even used pork trotters and peanuts to make the soup. Very yummy, the peanuts are usually gone very fast.

  2. Angie,
    same here... peanuts would be gone within minutes... :)
