Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

Korean chicken (chicken with ginseng, samgyetang)

Ginseng chicken is a Korean National Special and is said to be very encouraging.

(for 4 persons)

  • 1 chicken
  • 1/2 cup of pre-cooked rice
  • 4 whole ginseng roots
  • cup of leek (1 larger)
  • 12 fruits of the cicicum of the datal
  • 4 along the length of the chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 liter of water
  • 2 tablespoons of roasted sesame
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • salt
  • a pinch of pepper



Mix rice, 2 ginseng roots, leeks, 6 cicicas and 2 cloves of garlic. Chicken feed and mix.


Place the chicken in a thick-walled pot just slightly larger than the chicken. Sprinkle with water, add the remaining ingredients (2x ginseng, 6 times cicic, 2 garlic, sesame, sesame oil and pepper), boil quickly, then reduce the yield and slowly cook for at least 2-3 hours. The broth should be dense, slightly inflamed, and the chicken should be cooked to release the meat from the bones.

What to do if we do not have a cicic?

Buy cicicec here . If you do not have it, try to use prunes (if possible without pebbles) or cross, instead add some walnut kernels.

Original preparation sample

Note: The lady uses fresh ginseng, which is commonly available in Asian countries.
