I would like to post one recipe that has been posted in Straits times more than a year ago, in April 19, 2012. 

The recipe involves simmering Black Chicken, which is the main ingredients, in some herbal teas.

Health Note :  Panax Ginseng (scientific name for Chinese & Korean ginseng) is used in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine)  to boost qi and manage diabetes.  It is believed to have a “warming” properties that invigorate the blood and strengthen the lungs and spleen.
