  • 2 eggs
  • 4 cups chicken broth, low sodium
  • 1½ tsp soy sauce, reduced sodium
  • 2 chicken breast fillets, boneless and skinless

  • 1 cup sliced cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • hot chili oil- to taste (or sriracha)

Everyone’s asking: Is sushi healthy?


Add whole eggs (shell on) to a medium size saucepan and cover with enough water to cover eggs by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, remove from heat. Cover saucepan and let sit for 7 minutes. Remove eggs with tongs or a slotted spoon and submerge in a bowl of ice water. Set aside. This process will yield soft set eggs which are typically used in ramen bowls, if you prefer you can hard boil eggs instead.

Meanwhile, in a separate soup pot (or medium saucepan) add chicken broth and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Add the chicken breasts and continue cooking until thoroughly cooked (about 8-10 min) . Remove chicken breasts from broth, let cool to touch, and shred with two forks. Return shredded chicken to broth.
