Chicken Subgum Soup

==================

In Cantonese, "subgum" means mixed or varied. In this recipe for chicken soup, it implies that several different ingredients are used. Besides chicken breast, this soup contains fresh shrimp, bok choy and straw mushrooms.

----------------------------

I also like to add a few snow peas for their bright green colors and their crunch. You could just aseasity add fresh asparagus pieces or frozen peas if you don't have any snow peas. This soup is hearty enough to serve as a light lunch.

----------------------------

This recipe uses a box of chicken broth and boneless, skinless chicken breasts. If you would prefer an even richer soup, start with a whole, split chicken breast instead of the boneless, skinless ones.

----------------------------

It is easy enough to remove the skin and then to separate the meat from the bone using a sharp knife once the breasts are cooked. Simmer the bones in the chicken broth for at least an hour and then strain it before using it.
