Prosperity Chicken

With the year of the the rooster, we felt it was an appropriate time to come up with a special dish for CNY feasting! The Prosperity Chicken is full of good stuff (好料) meant to make this dish not only nutritious, but tasty, a perfect dish for a reunion dinner.
We used Angelica Sinensis, Goji berries, Solomon’s Seal, Lovage Root, scallops, and dried mushrooms for the herbal stuffing, and at the same time, added Yomeishu into the dish as not only is it good for you for its beneficial qualities, it also enhances the dish’s taste due to its liquor properties. You can shop for Yomeishu’s products conveniently online here:- https://redmart.com/search/yomeishu
Cook this for your family and welcome the New Year with prosperity!
