Chinese is one of my favorite cuisines to cook as well as eat. By cooking the rice before it is added to the soup, you will enjoy the crunchy texture with the other flavors in this delicious soup.

Thanks for this recipe!-it's very similar to our favorite soup at our favorite Chinese restaurant. However, after trying the recipe "as is" and then trying it again, I would recommend the following changes (sorry, Holly!): 1.use snow peas instead of green beens 2.instead of frying the chicken mixture, mix the chicken and shrimp with only one tsp. cornstarch, and 1 tbsp. sherry, let sit 10 min., then add to boiling broth. Let simmer, then add vegetables. 3.leave the bamboo shoots and water chestnuts sliced (do not chop). I used about 1/2 of a can each. 4.For the rice-by not cooking the rice before frying it and adding to the soup, it browns too quickly, and ends up tasting almost burned, and is still really hard. Cook the rice first, as directed on the pkg. (about 2 cups), then spread it in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Bake for approx. one hour at 300 degrees, turning the rice layer over after 30 min. (you may need to bake a little longer, to get it "crispy") Break rice apart, then fry and add to the soup as directed. (if desired, you can freeze half the prepared rice to use at a later time) Make sure the rice and soup are very hot in order to get that "sizzle". The first time I made this it was pretty good, the second time (with the changes) it was fantastic! Thanks again!

We loved this soup! It was so easy and flavorful, it will definitely be a regular dish for us. I made a few changes, but nothing to dramatically change the original dish. I used a 4oz can of tiny shrimp. I browned the chicken in the pot in a small amount of vegetable and sesame oil, omitting the deep frying step and the egg. I used 4 cups of broth, 2 of chicken and 2 of vegetable, and even with all of the liquid from the can of shrimp, I wanted more broth. If you used canned shrimp either do not drain them (and skip frying them) or reserve the liquid because it adds SO much flavor. I used half a can of bamboo shoots, diced water chestnuts, and bean sprouts. Instead of green beans I used snow peas. I used a handful of fresh shitake mushrooms, sliced. I also added in a handful of shredded napa cabbage right at the end of cooking. I can't purchase sherry or rice wine, so I substituted a healthy splash of rice vinegar. Even though it probably changes the flavor considerably, the results were tasty so I dont mind the switch. I tried some others' advice about the frying of the uncooked rice, which to me sounded greasy and unappetizing. I steamed 1/3c. of white rice to get about 2/3 cooked. I put the rice in a bowl and poured on about a tsp each of vegetable and sesame oil, and stirred to coat. I spread the rice out on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven at about 400. It took ~15 minutes to get to a desired crispiness. Just check it often to make sure it doesn't burn =)

It's a good recipe although I didn't follow the measurements given in the recipe. I omitted the mushrooms, egg and substituted the green beans with frozen peas. I would recommend using less than half a can of bamboo shoots. The taste overpowered the soup. For the rice, I sprayed a baking sheet with cooking spray, layered a thin sheet of steamed rice, then sprayed cooking spray over it, and then put it under the boiler. It took about 5 – 10 minutes and remember to watch it. I burned my second batch. Thanks for the recipe!
