Excellent dish. This is one of my favorites when I was in China, you can find it in almost all the Chinese restaurants, it's so easy to make, and it's loaded with yumminess.

Instead of egg noodles, we served with soba noodles. Also added some shitake mushrooms to the broth during the simmering. A delicious and belly-satisfying one plate meal.
