by roséline | recipe & photography by p. for {this is glamorous}


. . . despite the unseasonably mild temperatures, we have been cosy on cloudy days with chicken soup lately, which seems just the thing for these mid-november nights, which are dark all too soon now; and so, here, a take on classic chicken soup . . .


[recipe below] x


i n g r e d i e n t s :

chicken [we used legs, but any cut is fine]
green onions
chili peppers [optional]
bok choy
chicken or vegetable stock
bamboo shoots
egg noodles
sesame oil
sea salt & pepper

c o o k i n g i n s t r u c t i o n s

in a large pan, bring 1 - 1  1/2 litre of water and chicken stock to boil

in the meantime, brown the chicken in a skillet, then place in the boiling stock along with some coarsely chopped green onion, bamboo shoots, 1/2 clove chopped garlic, and chopped fresh chili peppers to taste; reduce heat and simmer for 35 - 45 minutes

remove chicken from broth, let cool, then remove skin and separate from bone, set aside

to the broth, add bok choy to soften, about 1 1/2 minute

add egg noodles, 3 minutes or so soften

serve immediately, with a dash of sesame oil, soy sauce, or hot chili sauce if you like things spicy, or just on its own, as the broth is quite delicious

Oh this looks delicious! Especially when it's home made soup and it's cold outside.

Laughed when I saw this. Thanks for sharing.
In Southeast Asia, this is called Mee Soto. Costs SGD 3 to SGD 4 a bowl and is a common dish for lunch.

Tastes really awesome with potato balls :)
