Chicken Tinola Noodle Soup

For the previous more than 4 weeks now,  I've been cooking soup dishes most of the time because of my off-again-on-again relationship with my gut.  And having hot soups for lunch and supper is a tummy-relief for me.  The Husband always enjoys our soupy dinner a lot and I am not sure who is happier eating noodle soups, me or him (evil grin)

The Husband likes noodle soups specially when it is misua or sotanghon or known to some cultures as glass noodles or starch noodles.  And I also prefer rice and starch noodles over egg noodles as they are friendlier to my tummy.  My gut finds them easier to digest.  So one time when I cooked chicken tinola for dinner,  the Husband requested that I add sotanghon or misua the next time. He actually requested that I cook tinola with sotanghon or misua for lunch the following day.

And so here goes the request, chicken tinola noodle soup.  Just in case you are not familiar with the Filipino tinola let me give you a quick and brief overview.  Tinola refers to a ginger soup dish and the most commonly known tinola uses chicken or other fowl as the main ingredient.  If you are interested in more of our tinola recipe, check out Tinola Recipes.
