Chinese Chicken Vegetable Soup

"We had a Chinese restaurant that made two soups that I loved how they tasted. When they went out of business, we looked for someone else that made these two soups, without much luck. Knowing all the ingredients that were there, I went to work to make my own recipe for this very tasty soup. Plus I'm a big fan of 'make it tasty, fast and easy' which this is, when I run the veggies through my food processor. Also when I not feel well, this is one soup that has all what help me feel better. I also serve this with steamed rice as a side dish for those who want it as well."

  1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven or soup pot over medium-high heat, and cook and stir the chicken thigh and breast meat until the chicken is no longer pink inside, about 3 minutes. When the chicken is cooked, stir in the water, chicken bouillon cube, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Bring the soup to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer.
  2. Stir in the baby corn, water chestnuts, carrots, broccoli florets, napa cabbage, red bell pepper, green onions, celery, zucchini, and snow peas, and simmer until the carrots start to softened, and the broccoli and snow peas turn bright green, 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in the mushrooms, and simmer for 5 more minutes.

I gave it 2 stars because the napa cabbage in the recipe overwhelmed all other flavors. I was looking forward to tasting the fresh garlic and ginger but all we could taste was the napa cabbage. ...

Excellent soup. I did use a little more soy sauce and bouillon than the recipe reads and also used some white pepper and teriyaki sauce. I prepared my veggies so that when eaten they were st...

I love Chinese cuisine but this is not that! If one went by the recipe, it would be as bland as plain water. The soy sauce needs to be much heavier as does the sesame oil. And the times for cook...

This recipe does have a good base for flavor...just needs an extra kick. Used lots more soy sauce, probably 4 tablespoons. Added a spicy garlic sauce. I used chicken broth 4 cups and 2 cups wate...
