    marisk's Note:

    A very light, simple chicken soup. Time does not include time to bring stock to boil ... might add another 5 minutes? Hehehe, I know I shouldn't write this here because you might not want to try it! Here's my friend's reaction even though I warned him that it was mildly flavored and easy on the stomach...and that he might want to add the very ingredients that he did! "About the soup...hehehe...I boiled the chicken in water for the broth, then added the chicken stock, shredded chx and asparagus. Well, the flavor just wasn't there and so I added a little salt then shoyu...something is missing...Aha, a little bit of dashi, the one with no MSG. Suddenly it changed the whole flavor! Auwe! Jam-up! And SO I decided to add sesame oil. Now this soup has gone through a metamorphosis...I call this soup: Oriental flavored Chicken Asparagus Soup. Guess I'll be bringing the soup to work for lunch."

      I had to make one change (not counting the optional seasonings mentioned). I had the tougher parts of the asparagus left over, so once softened and cooled I put them through the food processor. It doesn't look the same, but sure is good. A great soup to have in rainy, cold spring weather.
