   ~---------------- Remove skin from chicken breasts.
   Carefully cut meat from bones and pull out the pieces
   of cartilage. Cut meat into strips and set aside. Put
   bones in large saucepan. Add water, onion, bay leaf,
   parsley, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil.
   Lower heat and cook slowly, covered, 1 hour. Strain
   broth into a saucepan. Combine garlic, coriander,
   chili powder, and soy sauce. Stir into broth. Bring to
   a boil. Add chicken, shrimp, and mushrooms. Cook
   slowly, covered, about 5 minutes, until the shrimp
   turns pink, and the chicken is tender. Stir in
   scallions and fresh coriander or parsley. Remove and
   discard bay leaf. Serve in bowls over or with rice.
