How to make

① Put chicken legs and water in a pod and simmer it on low until chicken well cooked.
( It will take a lot of time. But it makes chicken soft♪ )

When you simmer it for a while, you will see scum.
Skim it when you see it.

When you don’t see the scum anymore, add chicken bouillon cube, salt and sugar.

Simmer it for 30 minutes more and then turn the heat off.
Rest the chicken until the soup get cold.

If you don’t have enough time to finish cooking everything, you can put this soup with chicken in refrigerator after cooled♪

※ Separate 5 tablespoons of this soup, for chicken tomato sauté.

② Let’s make chicken milk soup♪

Slice the onion, cut the other vegetables into small ( you don’t need to chop the garlic ) and stir fry them with butter or oil in a pod, until vegetables are well cooked.

Sprinkle some salt ( about 1/8 teaspoon ) to taste.

③ Add only soup of ① to ② and simmer on medium and bring it to boil.
Once boiled, change the heat to low, simmer for 15 minutes.

Add milk and put salt and pepper to taste.

If you want more taste, adjust with salt, pepper or sugar as you like♪

If you have chicken bouillon powder, try to add it.
It will make the taste even more tasty.

④ Let’s make chicken tomato sauté!

Take the chicken meat off from the bone.
The chicken is so soft so it’s very easy to take off♪

Slice the onion, chop the garlic and cut the other vegetables into easy to eat.

⑤ Warm the frying pan on medium heat, put oil and cook vegetables except cilantro, with a cover.
Once vegetables are well cooked, add canned tomato and 5 tablespoons of chicken soup, stir fry for 5 ~ 10 minutes, without a cover.

Sprinkle salt, pepper and sugar and check the taste.
If you think tomato is sour, stir fry a little more.

⑥ Add the chicken meat and cilantro to ⑤ and stir fry.

⑦ Trun the heat off and add cheese, mix them before it gets cold.

Check the taste and It’s all done♪
If you need more taste, you can add a little more salt and pepper.
