CHAI POR CHICKEN SOUP

This recipe is adapted from Y-Tower Cooking You-tube Show.  There are 4 different kinds of soup recipes shared, in which I have selected 2 to try.  The first that I tried was Dried Mushroom Chicken Soup [yet to share the recipe] with some modifications for simplicity and this is the second recipe which I tried recently.
It is really simple with just 3 basic ingredients [chicken, chai por and garlic].    The portion [serves 2-3 persons] shown in the pictures is a reduced portion of the original recipe which I am sharing below. 
This simple, homey soup is awesome.  It has the natural aroma and saltiness of the preserved salted radish [cai por].  The original recipe has some salt added which I have omitted as I find the saltiness and sweetness suit me well.  The chai por strips are no longer salty after boiling.
