Are you looking for a delicious Filipino Soup that you can quickly prepare? This Chicken and Miswa Soup Recipe is a good idea. I like Chicken and Miswa Soup because this is something that even a beginner can prepare and it is also budget friendly.
I prepared this Chicken and Miswa soup by first boiling the chicken. I used boneless and skinless chicken breasts for this recipe, but you can use chicken with bone-in. All I did was to boil the chicken until it fully cooked, let it cool, and manually shred the meat. If you use bone-in chicken, the same steps still apply – just be sure not to add the bones in the soup. The water that we used for boiling will be our chicken stock.
I competed the soup by sautéing the veggies together with the shredded chicken. The remaining stock and a few cups of chicken broth were added. Once the liquid boils, the rest of the ingredients are mixed-in the pot. It is very simple and straightforward.
