Chicken filled with bird´s nest



  • 1 cup bird´s nest
  • 1 quart water
  • 1 chicken, about 4 pounds
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce


First soak the bird´s nest in cold water for 3 hours.  Drain.  Boil in 1 quarter water for 15 minutes.  Remove the bird´s nest and run cold water through it.  Pick out all the feathers and dirt.   Bone the chicken without breaking the skin.  Stuff the bird´s nest into the cavity of the chicken.  Place the chicken in a deep heatproof casserole bowl.  Add the chicken stock, salt, sugar and soy sauce.


Place the casserole in a steamer.  Cover and steam for 3 hours.

After, check the water in the steamer from time to time to make sure it has not completely boiled away. Bring the casserole to the table and serve in individual soup bowls by cutting through the chicken with the soup ladle.  The chicken should be very soft.
