Raindrop Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Happy Harry 2

Made this for the celebration of The Year Of The Dog...Chinese New Year 2005! It was part of a wonderful meal...and I have to admit that I changed it up a bit to "dress it up".

This is a nice chicken broth with very light under tones from the sherry and green onion. Made without the water chestnuts as I just forgot to add them. I enjoyed the hint of sherry and think I will add just a little more next time. DH enjoyed but did add more soy sauce. Thanks for the post.
