Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Please take my word for it and don't judge this recipe on looks alone.  While this soup was not easy to take a picture of (a real blah color), it was very delicious!  If I had a smell-o-rama, you would love it! Ginger, soy and sesame oil really are quite flavorable together....  It says it serves 4 but Mr. John and I split it... but at only 154 calories a serving, it was a calorie bargain!

Recipe adapted from BH&G Chicken Dinners
