Preparation – 10 minutes

Bring the chicken stock to a boil. Chop the chicken into pieces and cook them in the hot chicken stock for 5 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken pieces.

Remove from the chicken stock and let them cool off a bit before you chop them into really small pieces. Set the chicken stock aside in a measuring cup, or use a second medium-sized pan. 

Peel and finely chop the onion. Chop the mushrooms and scallions into thin slices. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
