Samgaetang – Korean Stuffed Chicken Soup Recipe | Foodie Fridays

Jacob and I have been going through a cookbook that was given to me at my bridal shower with recipes from all of our friends. For today’s foodie friday, I decided to share a samgaetang recipe that my mom and I tried together from the cookbook for the first time this past week. This recipe was from Carol, one of my bridesmaids. Samgaetang is a korean stuffed chicken soup with ginseng and dates.

Ingredients:

  • Whole cornish chicken (1 per person)
  • Garlic
  • Dates
  • Ginseng (optional)
  • 3-4 whole onions peeled
  • 1/2 cup of rice (soak rice in water for 2 hours to speed up the process)

Directions

  1. Thaw the chicken
  2. Trim the fat off the chicken
  3. Stuff the chickens butt with rice, garlic, dates, and ginseng. (we did 2 spoons of rice, 1 piece of ginseng, 4 dates)
  4. Stick a toothpick through to hold the stuffing inside or sow the butt shut.
  5. Add the chicken, whole onion, garlic, and water to a pot (water level should be slightly above the chicken)
  6. Set heat on high until it boils, and then put on medium heat for 1.5-2 hours
  7. Remove the garlic and onions
  8. Add rice and cook until soft
  9. Now, you’re ready to serve!  Add salt and pepper to taste

  1. Confused on the rice. You stuffed the soaked rice into the chicken right? But then you said to add rice at the end and cook? Is this rice in addition to what was soaked and stuffed?

    1. Hi Dea. Good question! Basically you stuff the appropriate amount into each chicken. Each cavity will be different, so there are no exact measurements. Then the remaining rice can be added.
