Chicken Long Rice (Hawaiian-Style Chicken Soup)


Why recepie famous for?

This is my favorite dish of all time. This is also a great winter comfort food and great for flu season. Serve over steamed rice.


1 (16 ounce) package bean thread vermicelli noodles

warm water, as needed

3 chicken breasts, or more to taste

water, to cover

1 quart chicken broth

1 small onion, sliced thin

3 cloves garlic, chopped

3 slices fresh ginger, chopped

1 tablespoon patis (Philippine-style fish sauce)

1 tablespoon soy sauce

3 bay leaves

salt and ground black pepper to taste

2 cups chopped bok choy


Step 1
Put bean thread noodles in a large bowl. Pour enough warm water over the noodles to cover by an inch. Soak noodles until softened, about 15 minutes; drain. Cut noodles into shorter lengths as desired.

Step 2
Put chicken breasts in a large pot with enough water to cover by a few inches; bring to a boil and cook chicken until until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 7 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Step 3
Remove chicken breasts to a cutting board and shred into strands with 2 forks; return shredded chicken to the pot of boiling water.

Step 4
Pour chicken broth into the pot and reduce heat to medium-high; add onion, garlic, ginger, fish sauce, soy sauce, and bay leaves; season with salt and pepper. Bring liquid again to a boil and add the bean thread noodles; cook at a boil until the noodles are translucent, about 5 minutes.

Step 5
Stir bok choy into the liquid; cook just until the leaves wilt slightly, 1 to 2 minutes.
