Directions

  1. Pour chicken broth into a large pot. Stir in hot pepper flakes, vinegar, soy sauce, lemon grass, fish sauce, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and keep at a simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in cubed chicken, and cook until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Stir chicken into the simmering soup along with the cabbage and bean sprouts. Simmer until the cabbage is tender, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat, and slowly stir in the beaten egg, then gently stir in the chopped parsley. Serve immediately.

This is delicious! And easy to prepare. So tasty! I omit the fish sauce and lemon grass and I have used vegetable broth instead of chicken and added extra cabbage and sprouts. Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe.

AWESOME! I didnt have any lemon grass so i didn't use any. I like my stuff sour so i added 2 more dashes of vinegar. I also used the lite version of soy sauce to cut back on the salt. I didnt have black pepper so I used white pepper.. I didnt use a whole tablespoon just about between 1/2 and 3/4 tbs. It smelled the rest of the soup so i added more garlic powder, minced and about 2 cups of the broth mixture. I accidently added a lil too much red pepper than i wanted so i scooped some out and cooked the chicken in the soup and used one small onion. Will definately make again and I will try to thicken it with arrowroot and water since most hot and sour soups at the restuarants are thick.

I thought I'd add that you can find fish sauce (sometimes called nam pla) in the Asian foods section of most supermarkets. I don't remember it as being particularly expensive.
