Phillipino Chicken With Noodles

Recipe by Debbie R.

This came from a Phillipino cookbook I used to have. It is so soothing; great for those needing a diet on the nonspicy side. I prefer this Asian chicken soup to the regular American chicken noodle soup.

I'm used to having this in a similar recipe, tinolang manok, which uses ginger, chayote squash and we usually add potatoes too. This is a really nice simple version. I did it as described except I used a roasted chicken from the grocery store, and added more veggies after sauteeing the garlic/onions. I used broccoli, greens and potatoes. I'm modifying as my husband didn't like the recipe as much. Also i added some Bragg's for a bit more salt flavor.
