Stuffed Chicken Soup with Ginseng (Gluten-Free)

Stuffed chicken soup with ginseng, what the Koreans call Sam Gae Tang, is a delicious, fragrant soup that is surprisingly easy to make.

In Korea, it is commonly made during the hot summer months, when Koreans like to drink hot soup or stews. The Koreans believe that hot and spicy liquids help the body to regulate itself and stay cooler in the summer heat.

I find that it makes a great meal during the cold winter months. The very slight spiciness of the delicious broth leaves me feeling warm, and the sweet, rich chestnuts, rice and chicken leave me feeling satisfied.

  • 1 whole chicken or 2 Cornish hens
  • 2 roots of dried ginseng, washed
  • 8-10 chestnuts, peeled
  • 6-8 red dried dates, rinsed (optional)
  • ½ cup sweet, glutinous rice (Mochigome in Japanese, or Chapsal in Korean), washed and drained
  • 8 cloves garlic, peeled
  • ½ inch piece ginger, peeled and cut in half
  • 2 quarts of water
  • 2 chopped scallions for garnish
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions:
Remove any innards from the bird(s). Rinse bird(s) inside and out.

Trim any visible fat off the bird(s), but be sure to leave any skin needed to cover stuffing in cavity.

Stuff the chicken with the sweet rice, chestnuts and garlic. Use toothpicks as needed to help keep the stuffing in the bird(s).

In a large soup pot, add stuffed chickens, ginseng roots, dates, and ginger. (I prefer it without the dates, so I leave them out).

Pour in enough water to cover bird(s).

Bring water to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer.

Cook about 1.5-2 hours or until the thigh bones come off easily. Don't cook so long that the bird starts to come apart. The bird(s) should stay whole, with the skin on.

Skim fat from time to time during cooking.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Sprinkle with scallions to serve.

Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful.

You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times. That'...

That is a good choice. That way you can have an official diagnosis. I regret not getting a blood test as it would have made explaining things to people around me a lot simpler. It is common for family members and other people not to understand celiac disease and to think that it is a eatin...

You responded to a post that is from 2009, Side thought many celiacs react badly to dairy based foods and products. Other thoughts you can find pure proteins, non dairy, hypoallergenic, gluten free, etc much easier now days. I personally use NutraKey V-Pro, MRM Veggie Elite, Naked Pea, Nutrb...

I heard that muscles are mostly made of glutamine. Glutamine powder is available at walmart, is labelled gluten free and it is cheap. It might also help repair your gut. I take it regularly.
