Wonderful flavours and so easy to make. The only challenge was cutting chicken into matchsticks! The broth is divine -- in future I would either double the broth ingredients or halve the amount of noodles. Made and thoroughly enjoyed for the Asian Forum's Use Your Noodle Tag Game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice the chicken breasts into matchstick-sized pieces and set aside.
  2. Heat the stock and add the vinegar, pepper and soy sauce or salt.
  3. Add the chicken and cook for 5-10 minutes (the chicken will float when cooked).
  4. Add the noodles, tofu, bamboo shoots and mushrooms and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Serve in bowls sprinkled with the green onions.
