Chicken Noodle Soup, Malaysian Style

I made this on Sunday night and it was so good and satisfying that I just had to snap a picture with my phone and brag about it on the internet. With tender chunks of chicken swimming in a broth filled with fresh rice noodles and topped with chopped green onions, this warm hearty meal is my idea of comfort food.

I added shrimps to build a more flavorful broth but the soup would still have been delicious without them. If you're going to add shrimps, be sure to leave the shell on because that's where all the shrimpy goodness is. Garnish the soup with sliced red chilies and some caramelized onions - or if you prefer to cut your time in the kitchen like I do, keep a jar of store-bought dehydrated fried onions on hand.

Chicken Popsicles

The holidays are over (boo..) and I'm ready to start expanding my culinary expertise again. I've been making these little chicken treats for pot luck parties and they are always a hit whenever I make them. I think that's because they're so fun to eat. They may take hours to prepare but they'll disappear in a matter of minutes. There's very little that goes into cooking them, but the effort that goes into shaping these chicken wings into popsicles is what makes them challenging.
