Chicken And Bean Sprout Soup

As previously said in Bean Sprouts Stir Fried With Salted Fish, bean sprouts are definitely worth the buy. Really affordable and can be simply stir fried or cooked with noodles, dried or soupy version.  This one is made with chicken. First simmered to extra the broth. Then sliced, combined with bean sprouts and kucai and garnished with spring onion for a lovely soup.

I piece (about 300g) chicken fillet
100g (about 1 cup) bean sprouts/taugeh  - break off the brown tail part, wash and drain
10 stems chives/kucai  - sliced into 1 inch length
2 stalks spring onion - sliced thinly
Sesame oil - as needed
Salt and pepper for taste

Simmer chicken with 1/2 liter of water till it becomes soft and tender.
Remove it, let it cool down and slice into pieces.
Drain liquid/stock and pour back into the pan. 
Season with salt and pepper.
Let it simmer.
Put in the chicken pieces.
Also, add bean sprouts and chives.
Simmer; just to heat through again and off the heat.
Pour into a bowl, drizzle sesame oil and garnish with spring onion.
Serve immediately.
