  2. Cook a pot of water.  Add a pinch of salt.  Bring a water to boil.  Add chicken and cook at high heat.  Skim.  Reduce the heat and continue cook at the medium or medium high heat until the chicken is cooked.
    Don’t forget skim occasionally. When the chicken is cooked, remove cooked chicken out of the pot.
    Keep half of the broth for future cooking. (optional)
  3. Bring the broth to boil and add rice.  Bring it boiling again.  Skim any foam from the surface and reduce the heat.  Continue simmering until the rice is tender.
    Season the soup with salt and/or fish sauce and sugar.
  4. Done! We, now, have a pot of chicken rice soup and ready to serve.
    Pour the chicken rice soup to a bowl. Sprinkle some pepper and chopped cilantro and scallion.  Serve.
