  • 4 oz somen noodles about two servings
  • 1 large chicken breast pre-cooked, sliced or shredded
  • 1 medium fresno chili pepper sliced
  • 2 stalks scallions
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves for garnish

Asian Soup Broth


  • Boil the somen noodles according to the instructions and divide them into your serving bowls. Be sure not to overcook them as they're thin and don't require much time.
  • Meanwhile, add the avocado oil, garlic, ginger, and white parts of the scallion in a large pot and turn the heat to medium high. The garlic, ginger, and scallion will start to sizzle and flavor the oil. When the garlic turns a golden brown, add in the chicken stock, water, and fish sauce to the pot and bring it to a boil. Once it boils, add the pre-cooked chicken and turn off the heat.
  • Remove the garlic, ginger, and scallion from the broth. Taste and season the broth for salt if needed. Ladle the chicken soup over the noodles your bowls and place the chicken on top. Drizzle on top the sesame oil and hot chili oil. Garnish with cilantro leaves, red chilis, and the green parts of the scallion. Serve immediately.
