Recipe: BIRDS NEST SOUP

Title: Bird's Nest Soup
Categories: Chinese, Soups/stews
Yield: 6 servings

3 1/2 oz (approx) dried bird's nest 1/4 c Rich chicken stock
6 c Rich chicken stock for soup 2 Egg whites
1 lg Chicken breast 1 ts Salt
2 tb Cornstarch 2 Green onions, minced
2 tb Rich chicken stock for paste 1 tb Minced Smithfield ham
1 tb Dry sherry

Preparation: Soak bird's nest in cold water overnight. Drain and rinse.
Spread softened nest pieces on plate; pick out prominent pieces of
"foreign" matter (e.g. feathers, twigs) with tweezers. Debone chicken
breast, remove membrane and muscle fiber, pound meat with cleaver handle to
break down tissue, mince chicken until it is pulp. Make medium thick paste
with cornstarch and chicken stock.

Cooking: Bring rich chicken stock for soup to boil. Immediately add bird's
nest; simmer 30 minutes. Mix dry sherry and remaining stock; dribble slowly
into minced chicken. Lightly beat egg whites with a fork; fold gently into
chicken so they are not completely blended. Add salt to soup. Bring soup
back to boil and add chicken mixture slowly so soup does not cool. When
soup returns to boil, it is ready to serve. You can hold it at this point
on low heat. Pour into serving bowl, garnish with green onions and ham.
