Instant Pot Chinese Herbal Soup Recipe Silkie Chicken & Ginseng 花旗參烏雞湯 (Dong Quai 當歸 for Postpartum)

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Traditional Chinese belief is ginseng provides many health benefits, so once in a while, I make this Chinese herbal soup with Silkie Chicken and American ginseng. The ginseng can be also replaced with Dong Quai, which is believed to aid recovery postpartum.
