Chicken Bas-oy Soup



  • 1/4 pound of chicken meat, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium size onion, thinly sliced
  • 5 grams of fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 5 cups of water
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp of soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil


Heat oil in cauldron then cook garlic. When garlic turns light brown, add ginger and cook for 2 minutes.  Then add onions and cook for 1 minute, then add the chicken.  Add salt, mix, then cover cauldron and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.  Then stir to slightly fry the chicken. Then add the water and soy sauce. Stir, then bring to boil for 10 to 15 minutes.  You may add a little vinegar or chili power to taste. 

This is the first local dish I have learned from my Mama Nesing.  I have started cooking, maybe at age 5.
