Yen Can Cook: Mushroom Chicken Soup

I whipped out this super easy yet nutritious mushroom chicken soup on Friday evening for Sam and myself when hubby had his dinner appointment with friends.

Since I’m practicing low carb diet for dinner, I had the soup and ingredients while for Sam, I added some noodles for a more substantial meal. Win win situation! I believe chicken meat and mushrooms are some common ingredients that available in every kitchen, so dish out this soup is not a problem at all!


Ingedients (Serve 3-4)

Chicken (any part you prefer)

3-4 shiitake mushrooms (dried or fresh)

3-4 wood ear fungus

2-3 pieces sliced gingers

Handful of red dates (de-seeded) & wolfberries (goji)

2500ml water



Step 1: Soak dried mushrooms and wood ear fungis in water till soft and remove.

Step 2: Clean the chicken then scald in boiling water to remove blood and impurities.

Step 3:Put all the ingredients into a pot and add in water until enough to immerse all the ingredients. Bring to boil and lower the heat and let the soup simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Step 4: Add salt to taste & serve.
