Hot chicken soup….hmmm….what better way to beat an awful cold. With both my kids down with cold I made their favorite chicken soup. This recipe for chicken soup was handed down by amma which can be made with ingredients which are available in the kitchen ie if you have chicken in the freezer.
How to make soup:
Put 4 to 5 pieces of chicken with bones into a cooker and pour 2 1/2 cups of water. Add 1 tsp soya sauce, 1 tsp pepper powder, and salt and put on fire. After 1 steam simmer for 15 min and switch off the fire and wait for another 10 minutes. Open the cooker and strain it into another vessel. Shred the chicken pieces and put it into the strained stock. Put 1 tsp of cornflour into the cooled stock. Mix well and bring it to boil and simmer it. Lightly beat an egg yolk and pour thinly into the soup mixing well with the other hand. Serve hot with more pepper powder.
Tip: Can add or decrease cornflour, soya sauce, salt, and pepper powder to suit your taste.
