Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup


I think, if I am not mistaken, I have already told you that there's no right and wrong formula to cooking? For the food we cook at home? Basically, its pretty much up to us, though we like to gather some ideas on food cooking from tv programs and of course, these days, we shouldn't discount online search (Nyonya Lam Mee, Hakka Noodles, Chow Mein & Fried Mee Hoon). Let's forget about tv programs for the time being and speak about online recipe sharing. Oh my god. Millions of recipes will pop up, wouldn't you agree? Definitely (Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup, Char Kway TeowCurry Chicken Noodles & Penang Assam Laksa). These recipes of course without a doubt are a guide to our cooking or for some of you, you like to follow exactly. Then again, basically its up to you and your choice. However or whatever, for me personally, even when I share my own recipes, I like to make it a point in telling all of you that if you feel you can substitute the ingredients because you feel you already have other ingredients which are equally good, go ahead. Use them instead buying just to replicate recipes. For this Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup, I didn't have to refer to recipes because I quite know how to make Chinese noodle dishes (Bee Hoon Soup, Penang Mee Yoke & Sour Spicy Fish Broth Noodle Soup) and what can be different with the ingredients, you tell me (Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup, Chinese Chicken Herbal Soup & Burdock Root Soup)? This Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup I must say is mine. In other words, I did it my way considering ingredients availability. Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup I must stress is a delight. A true delight for tummy delightfulness and make sure you tuck in alongside some sliced chillies soaked in soy sauce and lime juice.


Ingredients
For the chicken
400g minced chicken
1 tsp dark soya sauce
1 tsp light soya sauce
1 tsp corn flour
1/2 tsp sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tbsp oil

Others, 
1 litre chicken stock (you can also use chicken cube)
Mee hoon (as needed) - blanch to soften
Spring onion - shredded
Bean sprouts - blanch to soften
4 shallots - sliced thinly
Salt and pepper to taste  

Method
Mix chicken with the ingredients listed under "for the chicken"except oil.
Keep aside. 
Heat oil and fry shallots till crispy and dark brown in colour
Remove and keep aside. 
Add chicken mixture in the same oil and do the same (fry till crispy while breaking into pieces)
Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil/pan, pour chicken stock.
Season with salt and pepper
Simmer to heat through. 
Assemble noodles with crispy fried chicken, fried shallots, bean sprouts and spring onion.
Pour soup over and serve immediately.

  2. Yes, the spam is horrible sometimes. I also received random comments , all of them stated in the same way that they like my blog (it was always very indirect) and then they posted a link to their website. To everyone - NEVER click those links! Delete those comments!

    Nice recipe by the way :) Looks amazing :)

  3. Thanks for supporting what I have written. It was horrible. I noticed some of the bloggers actually published the comments, maybe they are not aware of the consequences. Thought of letting them know via this recipe.

  21. Thanks for sharing the info about online security dear. Yes it's true that we have to be very careful about our personal info's. as u said it is important to reset our passwords to time to time and make sure u have made the password with at least with 2 letters, 2 numerics and with 2 extra characters such as !@#$*. It will be very difficult for the hackers to crack the password.
    About the recipe.. I started to like mee hoon after coming to Singapore, but i have never tried on my own. I will try this recipe dear.
