What is black chicken?
But first of all, we have to know what black chicken is. This dish originating from China is now a local delicacy here in Singapore. The black chicken isn’t actually a chicken with black feathers. It is a black chicken with beautiful white feathers. The black in its name can only be distinguished on its skin. If you think it tastes different, you’d be surprised to find out that it’s just like any other normal chicken. There’s so many ways to cook it too! Ser Seng Turtle Soup’s version of the chinese black chicken soup is made healthy with the help of the ingredients that we use.
1. Dried wolfberry
Wolfberry is also known as goji berry. Don’t be so quick to judge these small substances. They are actually filled with lots of nutrients that the human body needs. Its benefits include lowering of cholesterol, controlling diabetes, and strengthening immune system.

3. Lotus seeds
For most people, they don’t eat seeds. However, lotus seeds can be an exemption. These tiny bits are a great source of four substances — protein, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.
