Chicken - Macaroni Soup

This is my sister Kristine’s recipe.  When it comes to her, she voluntarily cooks anything involving macaroni (macaroni salad, chicken macaroni sopas,  hhhmmm i think that’s just about it)
Filipinos are familiar with this chicken macaroni soup we call sopas, it’s a  soup with chicken and macaroni as the major ingredients and flavored with milk and fish sauce.   When we were young, I love to get sick because our mama will always cook chicken-macaroni sopas when we are sick :-)
Anyway, here’s Kristines’s recipe, she didn’t put ginger since she hates its taste :-(


macaroni noodles – 100 g.
Chicken wings – 4 pcs cut in the mid joint
Onion, diced -  1 bulb
Garlic, crushed and chopped – 5 cloves
Evaporated milk – 100 ml (she almost used up the whole 200 ml)
Fish Sauce – 1 tbsp
chicken powder -  2 tsp
Ground pepper
Salt to taste (if needed)
Carrots, jullienned – 1 medium
Cabbage, jullienned - 50 g
Water – 1 L
vegetable oil – 1 tsp
Hard boiled eggs (optional but highly recommended) -  as many as the number of people eating.  In our case, 3.

Cooking Procedure :

1. Sauté garlic until it is aromative then add the onion and stir until the onion is transparent.
2.  Stir in  the chicken wings and pan simmer it until it releases its juices and oils.
3. Add water and cover.
4.  Wash the macaroni shells, drain and add it to the chicken mixture.
5. Let the mixture boil then add the milk, chicken powder, fish sauce and pepper.  Adjust taste with salt if needed. Add more water if needed.
6. When the macaroni is almost aldente, add the carrots.  Let it simmer.
7.  When the macaroni is cooked, remove from fire and stir in the cabbage.  Cover and allow the heat of the soup to cook the cabbage.

Serve with hard boiled egg and a glass of chilled coke :-)
