  • lb chicken breast or chicken thighs (bone-in thighs)
  • 7-10 cups water depending on pot size
  • egg noodles or Shanghai noodles rinsed and drained
  • 1 tbsp salt & pepper to taste


  • 2 eggs boiled & sliced in quarter slices
  • 1 onion quartered
  • 1 napa cabbage thinly sliced

  • 1 handful fried garlic chips
  • green onions chopped
  • 1 tbsp Patis fish sauce


  • Fill your pot with 7-10 cups of water.
  • Add in your chicken bones or chicken breast, onion, and seasonings.
  • Bring to a boil on medium heat.
  • You can remove any soup scum at this point and let the soup simmer for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Remove the cooked meat and shred it into small pieces and place it on a plate for later use. You can put the bones back into the soup and let it simmer for another 30 minutes on low heat.
  • In a separate pot boil your noodles as directed on the packaging.
  • While the noodles cook, boil two eggs for about 3 or 4 minutes.
  • Slice the carrots and cabbage into thin strips and distribute them evenly in your serving bowls.
  • Once the soup is ready, place the cooked noodles, and shredded chicken into serving bowls, and pour hot soup over them.
  • Now slice the egg into quarters and add to each bowl.
  • Add garlic chips, the spring onion, and patis.
