January recipe: Henan citrus chicken broth

1.17. 2020 Posted By: The Hungry Hounds

Henan citrus chicken broth is Paul’s non-traditional adaptation of the famous aromatic Daokou chicken from Henan province, China, near the lower reaches of the Yangtze River. We love this broth’s bold citrus aroma and flavor, subtle honey sweetness, and rich background spices. It’s a great broth on its own (Paul’s favorite), or with fresh steamed […]
