Chinny's Chicken Soup


This is an all-time favourite comfort food for me. Something simple to have when I dunno what else to cook. It’s my own version now, as since young my Mum has been cooking this but with pork ribs instead. I’ve been a Muslim-convert since I was married in 2007, so this is my Halal version, my way of continuing to have Mum’s food without her cooking it for me. Hahaha…

What you need (Cooks for 5-6) – 3 potatoes (cut into bite-size pieces) – 2 carrots (cut into bite-size pieces) – 1kg mid-joint wings (I marinated the chicken with oyster sauce, sesame oil, white pepper & some honey the night before) – 3 med tomatoes (quartered) – 1 whole clove of garlic – 1 tin of small button mushroom (halved, optional)

Seasoning – 2 tablespoons of Maggi’s chicken stock (concentrate) – 100ml chicken stock (watery type) – Sesame oil – White pepper – 1 teaspoon of sugar – 1 teaspoon of salt, adjust to your own taste preference

For Garnishing – Fried shallots – A smal bunch chinese parsley, chopped roughly

Method – Boil the carrots in a pot of chicken stock mixed with water for 15mins – Add the chicken stock concentrate & the rest of the seasoning(except pepper) to the soup – Throw in the potatoes and continue to boil for another 10mins – Add the garlic and chicken to boil with med fire – After 15mins, add in the tomatoes and boil for another 10mins – Finally add a dash of pepper when you off the fire on the stove Garnish with fried shallots & chopped Chinese parsley & serve hot with a bowl of nice & hot steamy white rice!


BIo of Hui Chin HC– Aloha everyone! This is Hui Chin. I’m currently working as a freelance Graphic Designer, a Mum to two girls. I started having interest in cooking only during my Poly days. My Mum has always been the one cooking in the house, who knows after getting married I slowly developed a love to cook! During March 2013, my hubby decided to give our very old kitchen a makeover. When our kitchen was finally done up I went on to try out baking with my new oven and I really loved it! Baking at night especially became quite therapeutic for me. Earlier in January this 2014, with my hubby’s encouragement, I decided to take my bakes to the next level. I launched my small home-business, named Big Mama’s Pastries. Do come on by and support me by giving my Facebook page a LIKE yea 🙂  Share the love through my food!
