Chicken Mami or Chicken Noodle Soup is a delicious soup dish fit for rainy or cold days. This is usually sold in noodle houses or “mamihan” along with other favorites such as Beef Mami, Pares, and Siopao.
This recipe is an easier version of my original Chicken Mami Recipe. The main difference is the part of the chicken used. Instead of using whole chicken with bones, I used boneless chicken breasts. Using whole chicken with bones gives you more flavors and makes chicken broth or cube optional ingredients. In effect, the time in preparing the dish increases because it takes a while to derive all the flavors from the chicken. It is also easier to slice the chicken breasts instead of manually shredding the chicken and discarding the bones. In other words, this recipe is the simplest, quickest, and easiest.
For me, Chicken Mami is not complete without the chopped onions and toasted garlic. These additional ingredients give life to this dish; I also add a little chili sauce to spice it up a bit.
