How to Make Asparagus & Sesame Chicken Soup


  • 1Preparation: Rinse chicken, remove fat pockets, pat dry, and chop into bite-size pieces.
  • 2Wash and cut asparagus into 2" sections.
  • 3NOTE: If tempted to use breast meat without bones, please don't; bones add to body and flavor of soup.
  • 4Peel and slice ginger root.
  • 5Wash and cut asparagus into 2" sections.
  • 6Braising: Heat wok to medium hot then add sesame oil and start braising chicken a few pieces at a time when oil begins to smell.
  • 7Sesame oil will burn at lower temperature than other cooking oils, so avoid hot wok.
  • 8After browning lightly, return chicken pieces to wok; add ginger slices, sherry and salt.
  • 9When sherry boils, add water and sugar.
  • 10Turn up heat, bring to boil, then reduce heat to simmer, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • 11Add mushrooms and asparagus, simmer for another 15 minutes.
  • 12Transfer to covered soup tureen (or put plate on top of soup bowl), place in steamer on low, and hold until ready to serve.
