Creamy Kombu Chicken Soup 昆布奶香鸡肉汤

Today I discovered a way of cooking delicious soup for my son! Is fast and easy because everything go into a soup pot. I added vegetables and chicken in it, and the stock base is using kombu or konbu. 

The recipe inspired me to cook this soup is from a child nutrition recipes book, it use cabbage and chicken stock, the chicken has to be pan-fried to golden brown before add to the soup. As I'm afraid the fried chicken will be too hard for my son, i didn't pan-fried the chicken and end up doing my own way all together. The soup turn out very delicious with a very flavorful taste of kombu, and of course this can be a great soup base for noodle too. I will serve the soup together with steamed rice for my son dinner.

Add milk to the soup last and just right before switch off the heat.

  1. Hi Tze! This soup is simple yet nutritious and delicious. Also will be loved by us adults!

    1. Thanks Phong Hong! Yes, me and hubby love the soup too!

  2. Happy Mothers' Day to you, Tze! You are always the sweet mum that cook the best nutritional food for Gabriel :D

    I have a lot to learn from you... Nice soup!


    1. Zoe, you are awesome mum too, some more you are working full time!

  3. Tze, last weekend I went to my regular-visit small Japanese shop for dried kombu but the owner said she has some problem with the quanratine. But she said once the stock is in, she will give me a call, till now, I still haven't received the call yet. It's quite cold in my area now, night time is below 10C, day time is in low 20C so I always think of having hot soup! Your kombu chicken soup looked very tasty!


    1. Jessie, you can get the dried kombi or the liquid type from Asian Groceries Shop at China town. I actually bought the concentrated kombi from Melbourne.
