How to Cook Chicken Sotanghon Soup with Malunggay and Sayote

Cooking this dish at home is as quick and easy as making regular sotanghon soup. All you have to do is prep the chicken and then start cooking the soup.

Prepping the chicken means boiling it for 18 minutes or until fully cooked. Make sure to save the chicken stock as it will be used to cook the soup later. I suggest slicing the chicken breast into smaller pieces before boiling to ensure that it gets completely cooked.

Once the chicken is cooked, separate it from the stock and let it cool down for 10 minutes. Separate the bone from the meat and shred manually. You can also chop it into small pieces, if it works for you.

Cooking the soup is a breeze. Simply saute garlic until it starts to brown and then add the onion. Trust me, browned garlic makes the soup tastes better.

Add the sliced sayote (chayote) and then continue sautéing for a minute. You can add the shredded chicken along with the stock afterwards and let it boil. There is no need to cook the chicken longer as it is already fully cooked.

I add piece of Knorr Chicken Cube to give the dish that nice solid chicken taste. It works wonders as far as I am concerned.

Put the sotanghon noodles next and cook until it softens. Lastly, add the malunggay leaves and season with patis (fish sauce) and ground black pepper.
