3 Generation Daikon Chicken Soup 三代蘿蔔土雞湯
Feb 21,2023 | Isle Provisions
Daikon is in season now ( usually in season December to March) , which means its the best time to have plump, juicy daikons!
I like daikon soup for its simplicity and taste. It forms a very simple soup base on which other flavours can be piled on. Here's a simple soup recipe that one can enjoy with our favourite cai po! We call it 3 generation cai po soup because it contains fresh white radish, 1-year old aged radish and 7-year old aged radish. Mix and match the quantities as you wish!
Bonus ingredient - chicken testes , or chicken buddha (雞佛) as the Taiwanese calls them 🤣 !!
Method ( we used a donabe pot for this)
- Boil daikon and the aged radish for about 30-45 minutes
- Add free-range chicken to boil for 30 minutes ( so the chicken doesnt over cook)
- Turn off the flame and add the chicken testes to the chicken soup. Close lid
- Wait for 15 minutes and soup is done.
