Cooking oil

How to Make Chicken Macaroni Soup

This is an easy recipe that you can make in under 30 minutes.  Start with boiling your chicken for 5-10 minutes or until chicken is done.

Remove chicken from the broth.  Shred the chicken meat and discard the chicken bones.  Set aside shredded chicken meat and the water where you boiled your chicken as we will use it as a broth later.

Heat cooking oil and butter in a pan under low-medium heat.  Sauté onion and garlic then add the shredded chicken and carrots and sauté in 2-3 minutes.  Add the 3 cups of chicken broth, the water you used when you boiled the chicken and bring to a boil.

Add salt, pepper, chicken cube and bring to a boil again. Add the elbow macaroni and cook for another 8 minutes or until macaroni is al dente.

Add the pechay leaves and the all-purpose cream and simmer for 1 minute and its done.
