Sometimes we love to skip our regular diet by having various type of noodles, flat bread or even pasta. For today, I'm going to cook my favorite Chicken Noodle Soup.
My recipe was a bit different since I have added bird's eye chili, to make it spicier and ground almond for slight nuttiness to the soup. This is the most loved chicken soup by my family.
Whenever I cooked any chicken dish, I make sure to remove the skin and excessive fat hidden in between the flesh. You can always ask the poultry seller to remove the skin and cut the chicken according to your requirement, how big you want it to be.
In addition of cooked noodle, you can make this heavenly soup with pasta or rice cake (lontong) too. You can control the spice of this Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup by adding more or less chili and also modify the vegetables to your preference.
Instead of serving the chicken as it is, you can shred the chicken with your fingers as you pick it off the bone. Simply pull the meat apart into chunks.
Warm the belly and heart with a big bowl of Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup. This endless customized recipe is healthy addition to any meal or a great centerpiece dish in its own right.
