This is an authentic, ‘home-style’ dish served in Taiwanese homes. You can vary the easy-to-buy ingredients however you want to yield as many servings as you want. Try adding a couple of tablespoons of whole kernel corn. Super easy to make, kids can do it too!

Asian Chicken Noodle Soup

Image courtesy:


  • 4 ounces dry Chinese noodles
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 6 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half
  • 2 eggs


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Stir noodles into boiling water and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. (For a chewier texture, shock the noodles by pouring 1 cup cold water into the pot when it starts to foam, then letting it come to a boil again to finish cooking.) Drain and divide into two serving bowls.

Meanwhile, bring chicken broth to boil in a medium saucepan with mushrooms and green onions. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and stir into boiling broth. When broth returns to a boil, crack eggs into broth. Continue to cook until chicken is no longer pink and eggs are cooked, about 10 minutes. Pour the chicken soup over the noodles in the bowls and serve immediately.
