in the kitchen:: chicken noodle soup

a while ago, one of you guys suggested that share my culinary adventures. 
i thought that was a brilliant suggestion (and i love hearing from y'all..) 
but after a few attempts, i ran out of things to show & tell... 
because 1) i always make the same dishes and 
2) im a stew kinda person. and stews are really hard to glam up! :) 

but im gonna try harder!!

what's your go-to food when you're feeling under the weather?
the funny thing is i always crave for chunky chicken noodle soup. and daniel's comfort food is chicken "chook" (asian chicken porridge).

guilty & dirty-mouthed carrot stealer!!
 when i was styling up that shot above, this little stinker snuck in for a snack.

here's what i throw into my "im-sick" chicken soup.

  • 1 pound chicken breast
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of freshly chopped parsley
  • oregano, basil, salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules (optional)
all in a pot and boil until soft & tasty.

i like mine with slurpy egg noodles and daniel likes his with roasted potato.
serve it in bed with a side of vitamin c and a long nap. 
and you'll feel better in no time. 



  1. just looking at it makes me feel better. hee hee. <3 mine with egg noodles too!

  2. I ask for congee when I'm not feeling well, usually with minced pork and a dash of sesame oil. Or chicken macaroni soup! Your chicken soup looks really yummy though.

  3. I like chicken noodle soup anytime, and yours look great! When I'm sick I gotta have chicken porridge, nothing else! I remember falling sick in Zambia and frantically trying to skype my mom going "Gimme your chicken porridge recipe NOW!"

    hi five! :) i even like the canned chunky noodle soup when i get too lazy!

  5. @Erica

    i do miss congee and the ease of finding them back home! we have to make it at home if we want.. :(

  6. @Yi-Ling

    yikes! i imagine it would be hard to get chicken porridge in zambia! when we first moved away from home there were many "SOS" calls like that too!

  7. my one pot wonder is usually ratatouille. it's easier than one would have thought. But I would marry a man who cooks me porridge!!


leave me a little love note. xx
