Alternative - Cream of Chicken:

  1. Use 1 chicken breast meat instead of mushroom.
  2. Steam Chicken with 1/2 tablespoon Chinese cooking wine.
  3. Retain the sauce to be used together with the broth.
  4. Use chicken broth instead of bone broth.

  • If you don't have broth, you can soup stock made using instant stock cubes.
  • Don't use water. It will be very bland.
  • Add more mushroom if you like.
  • If you find the soup to watery, add more evaporated milk.
  • You can also both mushroom and chicken to make Cream of Mushroom and Chicken.

    YongFook, I used to 'cook' Campbell's. That was the only think other than instant noodle I could cook during my teenage days. Theory, Thanks. Maybe it reminds us of our days as kids? ;)
