Japanese Style Chicken in a Pot Soup

Japanese Style Chicken in a Pot Soup created by IngridH

Try to find fresh shiitake mushrooms or black Chinese mushrooms for this, as they add a very distinctive flavor to the soup. If you can't find them, substitute 2 oz of dried mushrooms that have been rehydrated according to the package directions. This is a nice, light tasting chicken noodle soup. A girlfriend that moved from California gave me this recipe....don't know where she got it.

    Made this delicious soup today for lunch -- it is a very filling soup with all those wonderful ingredients. I did add additional soy and sherry and additional pepper. I could not find any good napa cabbage so i used organic baby spinach and regular mushrooms vs. shitake (just my preference). This soup makes such a healthy and filling soup meal -- plus it really makes a great presentation. Made for PRMR, September, 2013.

    I really liked the flavor of this soup, rich and filling. I also liked that it was full of goodies; mushrooms, chicken, tofu, noodles- so it really felt like a filling meal. My only problem with it was that the chicken came out really dry, even after just being on a low simmer. I think next time I would use thighs instead of breasts to avoid that problem. Thanks for posting!

    The star rating for this one is 4.5 - it does not get the full 5 stars because the seasonings are not quite enough. I would recommend 1/4 cup of soya and 2 tbsp of sherry as the soup was too bland with just 1 tbsp of each. I used yam noodles I just picked up at the local Chinese supermarket) since the noodles will pick up the flavour of the broth anyway and these noodles are full of fiber with hardly any calories. Only difference is the texture which is chewier. I used Bonapi mushrooms (similar to Enokitake mushroom) - my shitake mushrooms had gone bad. All in all a very healthy and filling dinner. Thanks for this very interesting recipe!
