  • 2-3 carrots, peeled and sliced thinly in 1 – 1½ inch pieces
  • 4-6 ribs celery, sliced thinly on a diagonal
  • ⅓ – ½ cabbage, sliced thinly
  • 4 Baby bok choy (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ chicken breast, poached in the stock
  • 4 cups stock (chicken or vegetable)
  • 1-2 pieces Chinese sausage (optional), if using, slice thinly and microwave for 45 seconds until crisp around the edges then set aside
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fish sauce (optional)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 8-ounce package bihon noodles (rice stick noodles)
  • Lemon wedges or calamansi and additional fish sauce or soy sauce for garnish
  • Ground white or black pepper for garnish



Step 1

To prepare the chicken, bring the stock to a boil in a medium saucepan. Once it comes to a boil, add the chicken breast to the stock, reduce heat to a simmer and poach the chicken until cooked through, about 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the chicken.

Step 2

Remove the cooked chicken breast from the stock (save the stock) and allow it to cool a few minutes before shredding. Set aside.

Step 3

In a large skillet or stock pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, under a minute. Then add all the vegetables and stir-fry over high heat for 3-4 minutes until crisp-tender. Turn off the heat, remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside.

Step 4

Transfer the stock to the same pan that you cooked the vegetables in. Add the rice noodles and soak them in the stock for about 10 minutes, until they’re soft. After 10 minutes there will be some liquid left in the pan. Turn the heat on to medium-high.

Step 5

Add the soy sauce (and fish sauce if using), vegetables and chinese sausage (if using) and toss for a minute or two making sure all the components are combined. Don’t worry if the noodles look a bit wet. They will absorb all the remaining liquid in a matter or minutes.

Step 6

Plate and serve warm with lemon wedges and additional soy or fish sauce.
