Herbal Chicken Soup



Nowadays, cooking is made easy or rather, possible for some people. Yes, the availability of recipes in cookbooks or even blogs has made cooking possible for many amateurs. What's more, products like chicken soup mix, instant paste (e.g. Hai's curry chicken and Laksa pastes) or ready sauces from Lee Kum Kee, cake mix, ready chopped garlic and etc have simplified cooking. Talking about ready chopped garlic reminds me of my visit to the Naturally Marketplace (at Vivocity) where i saw garlic paste in a tube. So, if you need some garlic for your cooking, you can just squeeze them from a tube and this is just as easy as squeezing a tube of toothpaste to brush your teeth!

*Knock! Knock!* Today is Wordless Wednesday!

Oops...I'm supposed to introduce the herbal chicken soup to you. Ok, let's get to the point. The delicious and nutritious chicken soup featured here was actually prepared using a packet of chicken soup mix. It looks yummy right? Please help yourself to the soup before leaving your comments. Be careful, it's hot and don't scald yourself. Ha ha ha. ;p

I cook chicken soup too...I use the one with herbal powder. Just add few cloves of garlic, a tbsp of oyster sauce, and boil in slow cooker, done! Quite easy.

Gattina said...

I don't like soups in general but for your chicken soup I make an exception, lol !

Jeanny said...

Hi Dora, I like chicken soup of all kinds. Your herbal version sound really good, especially since it is the packaged, add water, type.
We had quite a bit of chicken soup while we were touring China for three weeks. I like the dumpling too, we don't have ones like yours. We didn't make it to Singapore.

Thank you for peeking in at Amber (cat) and for your nice comment.
Happy WW!.

Christy said...

CECIL said...

Hi Dora, I love herbal chicken soup! Sad thing is that I have never made it myself - just kinda wait until my mom comes or I visit home. But I have always wondered about this soup mix thing in Asian grocery store, but I was skeptical! But I am so going to try it now!! Thanks for the tips!

Dora said...

vg: u may like to refer to http://www.sgbox.com/tchmhpc.html
