Chicken Stew with Ginseng ("Sam Gye Tang" or "Sam Gae Tang")
4 servings 

This chicken and ginseng dish is a very popular dish in Korea that traditionallly eaten on the hottest summer days. Sam gye tang, particularly its ginseng proponent, is revered as a medicinal dish that induces sweating, which “detoxifies” you, and ultimately rejuvenates you. This is a dish that shows the recipient a lot of caring–not only can you serve it on a hot summer day, you can serve it to someone who is feeling under the weather. In fact, it originated out of royal and upper class kitchens, before precious ginseng became widely available. This dish is very straightforward and simple to make.
