Shallot Chicken Soup - Chicken Soup # 1

Monday, May 7, 2012

Let the recipes be light this week.
I know most parents are busy with exams, right?
I'm lucky my kids aren't at this stage yet. If not you'll see me like a Lion King everyday!

My mom says this soup is good to dispelling wind the body. Shallots will make one fart, or poooot. My kids say pooooot poooooot. My mom also said, this soup is good for confinement. As having wind is one of things you don't want to have during that period. Add more white peppercorns if you can take the heat.

Shallot Chicken Soup
Recipe source: Wendyywy

1 small free range chicken (Kampung chicken), it weighed 750gm dressed
300gm Thai shallots
8-12 white peppercorns (I like it 12)
1.5L water (6 cups)

1. Bring pot of water to boil.
2. Peel skin off the chicken. Trim fatty bits off and tuck the feet inside.
3. Peel shallots and leave them whole.
4. Crack peppercorns.
5. Add in everything and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer for 2 hours.
6. Bring back to a hard boil for 10 minutes until soup looks slightly murky. Season with salt.

28 lovely notes:

Oh with lemongrass too? Great! I'll try that.

Hahaha, pls la, why you want to see me when i'm ugly.

Mel May 7, 2012 at 1:35 PM  

Just two ingredients only in the soup? Simple yet nutrition, right?

yvonne May 7, 2012 at 2:27 PM  

Another simple recipe :D

But I wonder would the onion be overwhelming? My kids and hubb don't really like shallot like I do :(

Elin May 7, 2012 at 2:27 PM  

It will be nice to add in lemongrass...mmmm that you can fart the whole day thru :p seriously lemongrass is good for the body too :) I like soup light and delicious...like this.

This soup is new to me, never drink this soup before,,but i know this is good for release angin, hehehe..

I like drinking this soup cos it's spicy! dislike the 'release of wind' after though >.< Made this just last week, added red dates and ginger to mine =)


What's Baking?? May 7, 2012 at 9:32 PM  

The soup looks tasty and with all the onions, I bet it's sweetness makes a whole lot of difference. I don't mind a bowl, Wendy!

ICook4Fun May 7, 2012 at 10:00 PM  

I don't remember seeing my mom making this soup for both my SIL. Must be really sweet with all the shallots in it.

lena May 7, 2012 at 11:55 PM  

yeah, nice with more peppercorns! Just like that pig's stomach soup..but i dont really fancy pig's stomach, if it's cut into smaller pieces. Next time when your kids are having exam, i must think twice before i come to visit you!

HK Choo May 8, 2012 at 1:33 AM  

Trying this soon..thanks for posting!
I like the minimalist ingredients, haha... :-)

Hi Wendy

Chicken meat would be tasteless to eat on its own after boiling for hrs, so what can I do with it other than discarding thm?


WendyinKK May 8, 2012 at 2:21 PM  

After boiling for so long, the meat is tender. If the chicken is boiled whole, the meat isn't entirely tasteless.It's still protein and we eat it up as well.

But you can stir fry it with sugar and soy sauce if you like. Tear into shreds before frying.

Pete May 8, 2012 at 10:35 PM  

Everyone in the office will avoid me if I drink this soup,,,,,pnoot pnoot...ha ha ha

Jeannie May 8, 2012 at 11:29 PM  

Waaa...can't drink this during the weekdays, don't want to fart whole day in the office haha! Looks delicious, can cook during the weekend then see who farts the loudest :P

Elisabeth May 9, 2012 at 3:48 AM  

HiWendy-thanks for following my blog...even though you didn't comment. I had to double check my follow option, to make sure that it shows!

Your chicken soup is very unusual, knowing that I love onion/shallots equally. Never too much for me!
Love this soup so healthy and delicious!

sapp,  May 9, 2012 at 11:22 PM  

great recipe! thanks for the idea. Will buy a chic and boil this during the weekend

Janine May 10, 2012 at 9:45 AM  

i've never actually had chicken soup with shallots, only onions but now that i think of it, why didn't i?? shallots are so much more pleasing with its round shapes :)

Hi Wendy, I was wondering if I could use chicken drumsticks for this soup? Forgive me for my ignorance, but why used one whole kampung chicken? Thanks, Michelle

WendyinKK May 14, 2012 at 9:39 PM  

Kampung chicken is always the better choice when it comes to soups due to it being home reared, not on a commercial scale, some even come wild. It is the healthier choice. And it is so small, you can't be using just the drumsticks. No one will sell kampung chicken parts.

Commercial meat chicken is loaded with lots of you don't want to know things, so, for confinement, usually it is avoided. But if you want to use drumsticks, go ahead, there's nothing wrong with it. It's just a less healthy choice.
