Recipe by Dancer

I made chicken soo-guy the other nice with fried rice, and this nice little soup. It turned out perfect and is a quick easy soup to make. I used homemade chicken stock and thats the only change i made to the origanal recipe.

This soup tastes great and is really quick to prepare. I really liked the addition of sesame oil, it added a lot to the flavor.
