Use Up Chinese Cabbage! Chinese Cabbage and Chicken Soup (Ozoni Mochi Soup)

You can make this dish with chicken and Chinese cabbage. If you add mochi, it will become an ozoni (New Year's mochi soup).
You can season with soy sauce and dashi stock granules.
This dish requires a few ingredients, but the flavors from the chicken is really delicious!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Chinese cabbage
1/4
Chicken (thigh or breast meat)
1
Soy sauce
1 ~ 1.5 ladelful
Water
6 cups - 1200 ml
Dashi stock granules
10 g (2 packets)

Steps

1. Roughly cut the Chinese cabbage. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
2. Add water and dashi stock granules into a pot, and add the Chinese cabbage and chicken as well.
3. When the cabbage becomes really soft, and the chicken is cooked through, add soy sauce.
4. Simmer for a little while, adjust the flavour (if you think it's too weak, add more soy sauce little by little), and it's done.
5. If you add pre-cut mochi, it will become an ozoni.

Story Behind this Recipe

I've eaten this for years. The flavors comes out from the chicken.
It will taste better the next day, which is the same as curry, because the flavor will be absorbed more.
