2. In a small non-stick pot, combine the chicken broth, soy sauce and sesame oil. Put on the stove and bring to a boil.

3. Stir together the cornstarch and water in a small bowl, until thoroughly dissolved. Pour the cornstarch into the pot of boiling chicken broth.

4. Stir the pot gently as you add the beaten egg. Reduce heat to low.

5. After about 1 minute, put the soup into a bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients, white pepper, salt and chives. Then serve.
