Japanese chicken soup ... my style!

I'm home alone! Sometimes it's hard to be single! 

Even i'm alone i need to cook and eat ... but there is nothing to cook on ref except for left over veggies and chicken meat. 

So i need to invent a recipe according to what i have in ref... 

So here's today challenge for me... something different... however, it turned out to be a simple, healthy and nourishing chicken soup. 
This is a mildy flavored! I love this kind of clear soup ... not oily and healthy!

My ingredients:

½ lb chicken thigh, chopped bite size
1 heaped cup radish, cut bite size 
1 cup carrots, cut bite size 
chicken broth 
2 cups spinach salt and pepper (optional, fish sauce) 
3 tbsp lemon juice 
umiboshi (dried Japanese plum) 

How i invent ... i mean cook? :P 

Boil chicken to a soup pot for about 10 minutes (skim the soup of any fats or particles and discard). 
Add chicken broth ... then add radish, carrots. 
Seasoned with lemon juice, salt and pepper. 
Add umiboshi and spinach ... simmer for about 2 minutes. 
Serve hot! Ittadakimasu!!!
