Stewed chicken with goji berries and dates

Hi guys, Ming Ming here. Have you ever tried some Chinese cooking at home ? Or perhaps you want to but just don’t want the smoke like stereotypes show Chinese cooking?

Today , I’m going to share a recipe of stewed chicken with dates and goji berries with you , which I always enjoyed when I was in China, especially in autumn and winter . The reason I prefer to it is that it’s easy to cook , almost smoke free , providing a nice taste of mixture of chicken , dates and goji berries.  In a word , pretty good to taste in cold days.
