Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe  @

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.

Servings     :    4-6

600 g fresh yellow noodle/rice noodle
2 carrot peeled and thickly sliced
2 potato peeled and cubed
3 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground fennel
1/2  tsp turmeric
1 stalk lemon grass bruised
4 whole almond  ground
10 bird's eye chili or 1 tsp ground pepper
2 big onion chopped
2  big onion sliced and fried till  crisp
2 cloves garlic minced
1 thick slice ginger
6 cups water
salt to taste
chopped cilantro
1.75 kg chicken pieces  with bone still in
2 tablespoon oil


Heat the oil in a deep pot, add in lemon grass and onion  fry until it turns translucent.

Add in coriander. cumin. fennel, turmeric,  ginger, garlic,  bird's eye chili and little water, cook until fragrant.

Now add the ground almond and chicken pieces, stir until chicken is coated with spices.

Add 6 cups of water, carrot and salt, let simmer until chicken is half cooked.

Now add the potato, continue cooking until potato turns soft and chicken is fully cooked. Check if more salt is needed.

Remove from heat. Bring a large pot of water to boil,  When water is boiling, put in noodles, let  cook   for 3-5 minutes (this is for fresh noodle). If using dried noodle, cook it longer.  Strain.

To serve, put the noodles in a bowl, add soup and garnish with fried onion and chopped cilantro.

I'm always up for finding a new variation for chicken soup! I tend to make the same one over and over. I found you over at the Delicious Recipes google community. If you have a moment, I would love for you to come over and share it with us at Foodie Fridays on A Dish of Daily Life. Either way though, I am pinning it now. :)
