  • 2 cups Chicken shredded
  • 32 ounces Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups Water
  • 2 tsp Garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Ginger minced
  • 1 small White Onion
  • 1 tbsp Fish Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 Cloves
  • 1 bunch Cilantro
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 12 ounces Palmini Noodles

  1. Divide white onion in half. Thinly slice one half, and chop the other half. Set aside.

  2. In a large pot, begin to heat olive oil. Add minced garlic, ginger and chopped white onion. Saute for 2-3 minutes, or until fragrant.

  3. Add broth, water, cloves, fish sauce, soy sauce and 1 bunch of cilantro. Bring to a boil.

  4. Continue to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Then strain the liquid, using a mesh strainer, into a large bowl. This will remove all of the solids from the broth.

  5. Return the broth to the pot. Add chicken and sliced white onion. Simmer for another 10 minutes.

  6. Add Palmini noodles, simmer for another 5 minutes.

  7. Serve in individual bowls and garnish with desired toppings.
