Minced Chicken in Clear Soup Recipe

Ingredients :

    • 500 g (1 lb) minced chicken
    • 2 spring onions, minced
    • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
    • 60 ml (1/4 cup) soy sauce
    • 1 medium egg
    • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
    • 750 ml (3 cups) Basic Dashi Stock
    • 2 tablespoons sake
    • 2 tablespoons mirin
    • 1 spring onion, finely sliced for garnish
    • 2 sprigs fresh coriander leaves for garnish

Method :

    1. Combine minced chicken, minced spring onions, ginger, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, and egg in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle in cornstarch and mix well.
    2. Form chicken mixture into balls, about 5 cm (2 in) round. You may need to moisten your hands with water to prevent the mixture from sticking.
    3. Combine Basic Dashi Stock, sake, mirin, and remaining soy sauce in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
    4. Reduce heat and add chicken balls, one at a time, to the simmering broth, and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove balls from broth with a slotted spoon and transfer to four individual serving bowls. Pour the broth into each of the bowls and garnish with thinly sliced spring onions and fresh coriander leaves.
