Chinese Chicken Herbal Soup


Chicken Herbal Soup

Chicken Herbal Soup is one of my favorite soup and normally I will cook soup twice in a week. This week, I pick chicken herbal soup is one of my soup dishes. At home, almost everyday mom cooks soup for us. She said soup is really good for our healthy. I did try chinese herbal chicken soup at Tuas (Singapore) when I worked last time, it costs me around SGD 10. The taste’s quiet nice but not much variety of ingredient. It’s just a plain soup and chicken.
