I was first introduced to Black Bone Chicken many years ago in Taiwan. What a revelation!! Granted, it does look a little odd. The color of the chicken is grey and the bones are black, but the chicken flavor is intensely good! And chicken soup never tasted so good!! The Chinese have long credited this variety of chicken as having superior therapeutic properties. And when it’s cooked in a soup or stew, the dish becomes a potent “yang” tonic and a nurturing curative for a cold or the flu. Black bone chickens are now available in supermarkets or butchers in Chinatowns all over the U.S.
You’ll never taste a more delicious panacea for fighting colds or the flu.
