How to make Black Chicken with Angelica Sinensis Soup

  1. Blanch chicken.
  2. Place all ingredients except wine and salt in a pot.
  3. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce to a simmer and continue cooking for 3 hours.
  5. Add wine and salt to taste.
  6. Serve immediately.

A better way to cook this will be double-boiling which ensure the essences from all the ingredients are not loss through cooking but it will take much longer to cook. Expect at least 5 hours! And you have to keep check on the water.
