"If you’re using a whole chicken or chicken thighs with bones, reserve the bones to make chicken stock. If you don’t have dashi, simply substitute 1:1 with the chicken stock. While this recipe calls for fresh shiitake, you can also use dried ones—just be sure to soak them in hot water to rehydrate. This is a great recipe to wipe up the last of your fridge’s produce. Add any leftover or frozen vegetables, such as broccoli or spinach."
