Sampan's chicken soup still comforting after all these years

  • 0

West Lake Chicken Soup, from Sampan Chinese Restaurant in Winston-Salem.

Sampan Chinese Restaurant recently closed after nearly 31 years in business in Winston-Salem, but it lives on here at the Journal at least in this soup recipe.

Owner Sandy Lo shared this recipe back in 2011, as part of an article on different takes on the classic comfort of chicken soup.

This is a very simple soup and all the more comforting because of it.
