Recipe • Fortune Double-boiled Chicken soup in Coconut
Then I saw coconuts at the supermarket and recalled seeing posts of chicken soup in coconut. That gave me an idea and here’s my recipe for Fortune Double-boiled Chicken Soup in Coconut.
I hope you will like this as much as we did! The light herbal complements the natural sweet tasting soup! (♡˙︶˙♡)

(Servings in 3 coconuts)
3 Coconuts (I bought mine from the supermarket with the top ready-opened)
2 boneless Chicken Thighs, de-skin
3 pieces of Fortune brand Locos, retain some of the brine (Note 1)
3 dried Chinese Mushrooms, pre-soaked in warm water
5g Dang Gui (or 1 piece,cut into 3 slices)
10g Huai Shan
10g Yu Zhu
3 Red Dates, pre-soaked in warm water
1 tsp Wolfberries, pre-soaked in warm water
•Wash and cut chicken thigh into 6 pieces of moderate size, parboil briefly in boiling water. Remove, rinse off excess scum and lightly season with some salt and sugar.
•Pour out coconut water into a jug and scrap out the coconut flesh, set aside. The 3 coconuts yield 900ml of coconut water which will be more than enough.
•Divide all the ingredients (except wolfberries) and place them into each coconut.
•Add 2 tablespoons of Locos brine into each coconut followed by coconut water until 3/4 full. Do not fill to the brim to prevent overflowing as the ingredients will let out natural juices and also, huai shan will expand after cooked.
•Prepare a steamer or a pot big enough for 3 coconuts, pour sufficient water and bring it to a fierce boil. Arrange the coconuts in the pot/steamer, lower flamer to medium-low and steam for 2 hours.
⚠️ Do keep a look out and top up steamer with more boiling water during steaming.
•Place wolfberries and some coconut flesh after 2 hours, off the fire and cover with lid.
Allow to rest for at least 10mins before serving.
(1) You may also replace Locos with Abalone 🙂
Wishing everyone a
Prosperous Lunar New Year!
