Samgyetang (pronounced [samgjetʰaŋ]), sometimes called chicken ginseng soup, is a Korean soup-based dish. It is basically a whole young chicken stuffed with glutinous rice and boiled in a broth of Korean ginseng, dried seeded jujube fruits, garlic, and ginger. Depending on the recipe, other medicinal herbs such as wolfberry (gugija), Codonopsis pilosula (dangsam), and Angelica sinensis (danggwi) may also be added. The dish's name literally means "ginseng chicken soup."
