I first learned to like this soup at a Chinese restaurant called Nong Chin's in Marion Illinois. I had to try my hand at copying it, as I love it--this is the result. AND these people DO NOT give out their recipes.
- Bring chicken broth to a boil in soup pot.
- Add 1/2 teaspoon salt & mix.
- Combine water and cornstarch; stir into boiling broth.
- Stir a small amount of hot broth into slightly beaten egg. Add egg mixture into hot broth slowly, stirring all the time. Cook until clear and slightly thickened, stirring constantly.
- Garnish with scallion.
