Simple Chicken Soup w/ Oyster Sauce 蚝油鸡汤

Before going on, we would like to give special thanks to La Gourmet for letting us try out their high quality thermal pot in the video. If you like to buy them, you can go to any of the major departmental stores in Singapore such as Isetan, Robinsons, Takashimaya, BHG, OG, Metro or Tangs.


This simple Chicken Soup with Oyster Sauce was inspired by my late dad. My parents divorced when I was 14 and my brother was 9. At what I consider a tender age of 38, my father had to singlehandedly raise two young kids by himself. Although my brother and I were fairly independent, my dad tried to shower us his love in his own ways and one of his ways was to cook for us over the weekends. This soup was one of his most frequently cooked dishes because I told him I loved this soup. Unfortunately, I cannot remember fully the recipe my dad told me but I just briefed Roland based on what I can remember. This soup may be a simple soup to you but it carries so much meaning and fond memories for me.
