This soup combines two classic southern Chinese ingredients: chicken and dried mushrooms. Dark chicken meat from the legs and thighs is most often used for this soup to give it a rich strong flavour and a good texture. Fresh button mushrooms can be used instead of dried ones but you should try to use the dried Chinese mushrooms if you can get them as their smoky flavour enhances the total effect of the soup.
There are two techniques involved here. The chicken is first stir fried to give it a rich flavour. Then all the other ingredients are simmered together with the fried chicken. The result is a good soup which would also go well with French bread and butter for a nonChinese meal. It also re heats nicely tasting even better when made one day and eaten the next.
