  • ​1 cup button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup dried brown mushrooms, soaked and then sliced
  • 1/2 cup dried black mushrooms, soaked and then sliced
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup shredded cooked chicken
  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp monosodium glutamate (optional) Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsps Shao Hsing wine or dry sherry (optional)
  • Pinch ground white pepper
  • 1 tsp cornstarch or arrowroot blended with 1 tbsp stock


  • #A classic combination which works well.# Stir-fry the mushrooms in the oil for 2 minutes and then remove them.
  • Bring the stock to the boil in a large pan with the remaining ingredients, apart from the cornstarch and mushrooms.
  • Add the blended cornstarch and the mushrooms, and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately. #COOK’S TIP# It is well worth hunting for the dried mushrooms as they taste wonderful. They are available in health food stores and Chinese supermarkets.
