Servings: 4


  • 2 cups Boneless Chicken
  • 1 tbsp


  • 1 cup Carrots (chopped)
  • 1 cup Corn
  • 1/2 cup Green Pepper (chopped)
  • 1 cup Lettuce (thinly sliced)
  • 1 cup Green Onion (chopped)
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 4 Chicken Cubes
  • 4 tbsp Soya Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Vinegar
  • Salt If needed
  • 1 tbsp Crushed Black pepper
  • 2 Eggs
  • 4 tbsp Corn Starch
  • 6 cups Water


  • 2 Spicy Green Pepper
  • 1/2 White Vinegar
  • Chilly Sauce To taste


  • Slice 2 spicy green peppers thinly and add them to 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Let it soak until you get your soup ready.
  • I usually prefer chicken thighs over chicken breasts when it comes to making anything with boneless chicken. I find chicken thigh to be moist while chicken breast to be very dry. Cut small and think strips of boneless chicken. 
  • In a pan, put 2 tbsp of oil and let it warm. Now add chicken and crushed garlic and cook on high until the chicken changes its color. 
  • Add green pepper, white part of green onion, carrots and corn and stir fry for a minute. 
  • Now add water in the pan and cover the lid. Let it simmer on medium- low for about 15 minutes. At this point, you will end up with a delicious and nutritious chicken and vegetable stock. 
  • Add chicken cubes, Soya Sauce, vinegar and black pepper. 
  • Add salt only if needed since soya salt and chicken cubes already have salt. 
  • Add green part of green onion and lettuce in the soup. Let it cook for 5 more minutes. 
  • Mix corn starch with water well and pour it slowly into the soup while you stir continuously. Soup’s consistency should not be too thick or too thin. 
  • Beat eggs very well in a small bowl and pour them slowly all over the soup. Stir very slowly with a light hand. Once the egg cooks inside the soup cover the lid and let it simmer on medium for 2 more minutes. 
  • Serve and enjoy with two sides of green pepper and vinegar, and chilly sauce. Add individually according to taste.


Enjoy the hot and yummy appetizer for your winter nights.
