I have cooked a similar soup like this [here] using a soup pot.  This time, I tried preparing this soup with my Thermal Cooker after watching the recipe in a TV show.  It is a family style soup from a Sarawakian family.  The ingredients are simple with only 3 ingredients [white fungus, chicken and goji].
Instead of meaty chicken, I used free range chicken.  The soup is clear, tasty and not oily.  The white fungus is soft.  Nice slurpy soup that is so easy to prepare.   
I transfer the soup into a claypot and reheat before serving.
1/2 free range chicken - cut bite size pieces [with or without skin]
10 gm white fungus - soaked to fluff up - break into florets
1-2 tbsp wolfberries [goji] - rinsed and drained
salt and chicken stock granules to taste
1.2 litres water [adjust accordingly]
  1. Blanch chicken pieces in boiling water to remove any scums.  Rinsed.
  2. Pour water into the inner pot of thermal cooker, bring to boil with white fungus.  Add in chicken and goji when water boils.
  3. Bring to boil for a further 10 minutes.  Add in seasoning to tastes.  Off heat, cover lid and transfer pot to outer pot. Close lid and leave soup to cook for 1 to 2 hours.
  4. Remove inner pot from cooker, reheat soup before serving [if you prefer hot boiling soup] otherwise, serve immediately.

Kimmy, this is a simple yet tasty and nutritious soup. I wanted to try putting white fungus into chicken soup but have yet to buy the while fungus.

Hi Phong Hong, you have to try this soup esp. when white fungus has these benefits for specific health conditions which include the following - Prevents Atherosclerosis and high cholesterol and anti-cancer agent [some lab tests show that snow fungus extracts kill cervical cancer cells].
