Chicken Sotanghon

This ulam recipe is a hearty meal full of protein, vitamins and minerals to help keep us safe from the elements during the colder weather. 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound chicken legs
  • 1 (28g) Mega Prime Whole Mushroom (198g) 
  • 226g Mega Prime Choices Vermicelli (250g) 
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons achiote powder
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 411g cans of chicken broth
  • 2 green onions, chopped

Directions

  • Bring water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a large pot. Add chicken legs and simmer until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Reserve the liquid, remove chicken and allow it to cool, then remove meat from the bones and shred with two forks. Discard the skin and bones.
  • Meanwhile, place shiitake mushrooms in a bowl and pour enough warm water over them to cover them completely; allow to soak until pliable, about 30 minutes. Remove mushrooms, reserving water; slice, and set aside. Place noodles in reserved water, adding more warm water if needed to cover; allow to soak until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain and cut noodles if desired.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Add achiote powder and continue to cook and stir until the mixture is well coated. Stir in shredded chicken meat, sliced shiitake mushrooms, and fish sauce; season with salt and pepper.
  • Stir in chicken broth and reserve  cooking liquid from the chicken. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Add noodles and cook for 5 minutes more. Garnish with green onions.

  • Add beef back to the dutch oven then add broth, wine, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and bay leaves. 
  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and let simmer until beef is tender, 30 to 45 minutes.
