Chicken Breast Finely shredded 1 medium
Spring Onion 1
Egg 1
Cornflour/ corn starch 3 tablespoons
Oil 1 tablespoon
Garlic finely chopped 2-3 cloves
Ginger finely chopped 1/2 inch piece
Green chillies finely chopped 2
Carrot cut into thin strips 1/2 medium
Mushrooms thinly sliced 6-8
French beans cut into diamonds 5-6
Soy sauce 1 tablespoon
Green chilli sauce 2 tablespoons
MSG 1/4 teaspoon
White pepper powder 1/2 tablespoon
Salt to taste
Chicken stock 5-6 cups
Vinegar 2 tablespoons

Method

Chop the spring onion with the greens. Reserve some spring onion greens for garnish. Break the egg into a bowl and whisk lightly. Mix the cornflour in half a cup of water.

Heat the oil in a wok or a pan, add the chicken and stir-fry for a minute or two. Add the garlic, ginger and green chillies and continue to stir-fry for half a minute more.

Add the spring onion and continue to cook for a minute. Add the carrot, mushrooms and French beans and stir. Add the soy sauce, green chilli sauce, MSG, white pepper powder and salt. Mix well and stir in the chicken stock.

Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer for three to four minutes. Stir in the cornflour mixture and cook for a minute or until the soup thickens, stirring continuously. Stir in the whisked egg in a steady stream so that it forms into threads as it cooks.

Add the vinegar and serve piping hot, garnished with the reserved spring onion greens.

I used bread sticks to go with it..
