Ingredients

Barbecue chicken (shop bought) 100g
Onion (small) 1/2
Carrot (small) 1/2
Tofu 1/4
Egg 1
Water 3 cups
Salt 1/3 tsp
Sake 2 tbsp
Soy sauce 3-4 tbsp
Pepper 1 tbsp
Chicken stock granules 2 tbsp
Frozen prawns 3-4 tbsp
Frozen green peas 3-4 tbsp
Potato starch in water 1 tbsp
Vinegar 2 tbsp
Spring onion 1

Method

1
Cut the carrot, onion and tofu into 1cm dice. Boil the water in a pan and add the shredded chicken, carrots and onions. Add the salt and sake and boil on high heat for 5 minutes.
2
Add the tofu, soy sauce, stock granules and pepper and cook for a further 5 minutes.
3
Add the frozen prawns and green peas and cook for a further 2 minutes then turn the heat off. Add the potato starch in water a bit at a time and stir to thicken. Pour in the beaten egg slowly, but don't stir.
4
Add the vinegar before transferring to a soup bowl and sprinkling with finely chopped spring onions.
5
I used this House Foods medium firm tofu.

Tips & Note

You can add green beans, mushrooms or your favourite vegetables but always add the vinegar right at the end to retain its sourness. The heat is from the pepper, not chilli, so adjust the vinegar and pepper to your taste.
