Soy Sauce Chicken Soup

by tina

Another chicken soup!! You can see how lazy I am :P


  • 4-4 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 of a whole chicken, cut into small pieces (approx. 1.5 lbs, so whole chicken was about 3 lbs. I used the other half of the chicken when I made the winter melon soup)
  • ~10 ginger slices, thin
  • 1-1 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce (to taste)
  • ~5 shitake mushrooms
  • goji berries

In a large pot, place the water and ginger in and turn the temperature to high. Once it reaches a boil, place the chicken in. Put the lid on for about 3 mins.  The fats should be bubbling and forming on the surface of the soup and you’d want to scoop that out. I like a little fat in my soup for the flavor, so I don’t scoop all of it out completely. Let the soup boil for about 3 more mins.

Add the 1 tablespoon soy sauce in and stir. (You can always add a little more soy sauce later if needed.) Add the shitake mushrooms and sprinkle a few goji berries in. Place the lid back on and turn the temperature down to medium.

After about 5 mins, turn the temperature down to medium low. Let the soup simmer a little more and then it’ll be ready to be served.
