Chicken Broth Mushroom Soup

Submitted by on January 21, 2010 – 10:05 am3 Comments | 16,706 views

Soup Name:  Chicken Broth Mushroom Soup

Traditional Chinese Name: 雞菇湯 (jī gū tāng)
 
Introduction:
When I’m feeling a little lazy but still want a warm chinese soup to enjoy with my dinner, I can quickly toss the ingredients of this soup into a pot of water with minimal fuss and, 90 minutes later, have a tasty soup ready to serve!   Using chinese mushrooms is an easy way to give a flavour boost to any simple, meat-based broths.  As a short cut, buy pre-cut chicken pieces from your local grocery store or butcher and rinse them under cold water before use.   Once I have drank the soup, I also enjoy eating the chicken meat dipped it in a little bit of soy sauce.

What Ingredients are required?
1 whole chicken (or chicken pieces)
20 pieces chinese mushrooms
2-3 L of water
Salt or soy to taste

How do I prepare it?

  1. If using a whole chicken, prepare the chicken and chop into pieces
  2. Pre-boil chicken pieces and rinse
  3. In the boiling soup water, add all the ingredients together
  4. Reduce to low heat and simmer for 60 – 90 minutes
  5. Scoop out residual oil with an oil scooper
  6. Serve and enjoy!

Any benefits?

  • Chicken is a great low-fat protein.  It is lower in calories, fats and saturated fats than most other meats
  • Chicken is extremely dense in nutrients, including protein, zinc, iron, phosphorous, riboflavin, thiamin and niacin
  • Using the whole chicken (bones and all) also include extra collagen
  • Easy to make and delicious!
