Chicken Vegetable Soup


A rainy day is a soupy day, a soupy day is a rainy day (Corn Soup, Pumpkin Soup & Mutton Soup). Whichever. Coldness and rain pouring from heaven primarily is the reason I am assuming why we yearn for a bowl of mouth, throat and tummy warming soup (Chick Kut Teh & Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken). Of course, but you don't really have to limit soup for only rainy day because any day by far is a great day for soups. For me personally, aside to rain synonymous for soup, I like the fact that soup is an easy preparation. Simmering easily is the route to making soups. Precisely. Additionally, there's no right wiring for soups? Anything goes, its basically all up to you for the various ways to soups. For this soup, a lazy soup I would also say, its chicken rightly is the core ingredient (Curry Chicken Noodles, Cashew Masala Chicken, Salted Egg Chicken & Sesame Chicken) and we also need the rest of the ingredients as listed below. All in all, its basically, chicken & vegetable into soup (Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup & Chicken Wanton Soup).  

Ingredients
300g chicken fillet - sliced into medium size pieces
2 medium (about 300g) potatoes - cut into chunks
1 (about 120g) tomato - sliced
15 French beans - cut into 2 or 3 pieces
5 garlic - chopped
2 bay leaves 
2 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced
3 cups (estimate) vegetable stock (any you prefer)
2 tbsp oil
Crushed black pepper and salt to taste

Method:
Heat oil.
Add garlic, chicken and sliced tomato. 
Stir and cook till tomato softens. 
Pour 1 liter of stock (any type but for this one, chicken stock will be good), add bay leaves and potatoes.
Simmer over low heat until potatoes are cooked.
Put in beans, season with pepper and salt. 
Continue to simmer, for another 3-4 mins and off the heat.
Garnish with coriander leaves.
