Very easy to make - the rice just needs to be set up to simmer, then it's a quick stirfry and you're done. The flavor could be more intense - I served this with soy sauce and Tabasco sauce, and my fiancee and I seasoned to taste. Only small amounts of soy sauce and Tabaasco were required to enhance the flavor, but it made a big difference - I'd recommend serving the soup with those condiments or others of your choice - people who like intense flavors may want to add a little kick.

My mother makes a soup like this. She has the chicken, fried garlic in oil, and cilantro with it. Its very good to add some sriracha sauce too.
