  Add chicken stock; let it simmer for 15 minutes.
 
  Drain oysters, reserving the liquid, and checking for shell bits and sand. Add
 oysters and their liquid to the soup.

 another 10-15 minutes.
 
  Can be chilled and kept overnight (in fact, the flavors improve) and then
 heated before serving.
