2 teaspoons sesame oil

1/2 cup snow peas
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
200 grams of Chinese egg noodles or rice noodles
Fresh cilantro, for garnish
Salt and pepper, to taste


Cook the Chicken: In a pot, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the chicken breasts, reduce heat, and simmer until cooked through (about 20 minutes). Remove the chicken, shred it, and set aside.

Sauté Aromatics: In the same pot, sauté garlic and ginger until fragrant (about 2 minutes).

Season the Broth: Add soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, and sesame oil to the pot. Stir to combine.

Simmer Vegetables: Add mushrooms, carrots, and simmer until they are tender (about 5 minutes).

Cook Noodles: In a separate pot, cook the noodles according to package instructions, then drain.

Combine: Add the shredded chicken, snow peas, and green onions to the soup. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.

Season: Taste and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using).

Serve: Place a portion of noodles in each bowl. Ladle the hot soup over the noodles. Garnish with fresh cilantro.

This soup combines the comforting warmth of chicken noodle soup with the rich, savory flavors typical of Chinese cuisine. The use of sauces like soy, oyster, and hoisin adds depth, while ginger and garlic provide a fragrant base. Enjoy!
