Ingredients

Number of serving: 2
2 cups cooked and shredded chicken meat,

200 g elbow macaroni

5 cups (maybe more) of the broth where the chicken was boiled. The chicken should be seasoned with salt and pepper prior to boiling to attain a tasty broth.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil,

5 cloves garlic, peeled and minced,

1 medium onion, peeled and minced,

2 tablespoons patis or fish sauce,

1 small carrot, peeled and julienned,

1 small leeks or several stalks of green onions, minced

2 cups Chinese cabbage, shredded

1 tsp salt or to taste

1 tsp freshly cracked or ground pepper,

3 pcs fried hotdog, diagonally sliced (optional)

¾ cup fresh milk

2 hard boiled eggs for extra toppings, to be peeled and sliced.

Preparation

  • In a medium sauce pan, pour the broth and heat over medium flame until boiling.
  • Add some chicken cube and adjust the seasonings to make a real tasty broth. Keep the chicken stock warm or at boiling point over the lowest heat setting possible.
  • At the same time, in a heavy casserole or wok, heat the oil over medium flame. Fry garlic followed by the onion.
  • While sizzling, add fish sauce and allow cooking to lessen the pungent smell. Add in the shredded chicken and continue sautéing. Add the carrot and sauté further until the carrot is half cooked.
  • Pour about 4 cups of broth to the chicken and continue simmering on low heat. When boiling, add inn cracked peppercorn and salt to taste.
  • Add the macaroni and continue cooking until al dente. Add the hotdogs, if using, and adjust the level of broth by adding several cups more depending on how soupy you like it to be.
  • Add the green onion leaves and cabbage and cook for two more minutes with the lid on. Finally, adjust the seasoning.
  • Turn off the heat. While slowly stirring, gradually pour the milk to create the creamy consistency of the soup. When everything is well mixed, it's done and ready to go.
  • Transfer into individual bowl, topped with some more minced green onions and slices of hard boiled egg then serve immediately. Piping hot, that's it.
  • On its own, with bread roll or pandesal, with toasted bread and your favorite spread, as side dish or soup dish in a meal, or how ever you want it, enjoy this delicious dish. It will comfort you down the bones.
