Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup

Content contributed by: Jane Ong

Ginseng Chicken Soup is one of Korea's most popular and famous dishes. We feel that it can very well be Korea's national dish.   It's a must-try soup for tourists who visit South Korea. (We aren't sure about North Korea though.)  We think it's also a must-try soup for tourists who visit Los Angeles.  Ginseng is one of the power foods that has numerous health benefiting properties, and chicken is also a power food.  So this is the "Double-Power soup" we have whenever we have a cold.  But even when we don't have a cold, we still crave for it because it's just so good.  Lucky for my family, we recently found this soup being sold frozen at Hannam Chain Supermarket (3030 W. Sepulveda Blvd, Torrance, CA 90505). The frozen soup weighs 2-pounds and costs $12.99.  What's inside the bag is exactly what you see on the photo on the packaging.  It literally has a whole cornish hen inside with the usual stuffing.  We like that the whole bag can be just heated up in a pot of water according to the instruction. It's easy and mess free.  After heating the bag according to the package instruction, season with salt and it's ready to serve.  This soup tastes as good as the ones we get from the Korean restaurants.  It tastes so authentic! We totally love it, particularly because it's made in the USA.
