Chicken with White Fungus Soup

This is a very easy soup to cook which does not require specific amount of ingredients.  You can add or reduce the amount of the ingredients according to your preference.  For this soup, I simply mix and match the ingredients according to how many people I'm serving this soup.
I cooked this soup at my MIL's place and I didn't have much time to take step by step photos on the preparations.  Moreover, I had many other dishes to cook during that time.  It's a light soup  and I just love the clarity of the soup, not oily at all.  Dipped the chicken pieces in soy sauce before eating it brings out the sweetness of the meat.
3 chicken thighs - cut big chunks [with or without skin]
3-4 chicken wings - discard the end tip and cut at the joints
10 gm white fungus - soaked to fluff up - break into florets
1 can mushrooms - halved [use either straw or button mushrooms]
a handful of red dates - rinsed
some garlic - keep whole with skin
1/2 tbsp white peppercorns - lightly smashed
salt and chicken stock granules to taste
1.5 litres water [adjust accordingly]

  1. Pour water into soup pot, add in f\garlic and peppercorns.  Bring to boil, then add in white fungus, continue to boil for 15-20 minutes or until the soup is fragrant.
  2. Add in the chicken pieces and red dates.  Continue boiling over medium heat until chicken is tender [about 10 minutes].  Add seasoning to taste.
  3. Cover, off heat.  Serve soup hot.

Hi Phong Hong, I love white fungus cooking in sweet or savoury soups. It is also good for salads....

Hi Ivy, I prefer clear soups. This one no doubt with chicken looks just what I expected.
