Ingredients

  • Store-bought whole rotisserie chicken Save the juice if any
  • 1 lb Pasta or noodle of your choice
  • 2 bunches of Gai lan / Chinese Broccoli sub with bok choy, broccolini or whatever you like

Coconut lemongrass soup:

  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • Juice from the rotisserie chicken
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 large lemongrass cut in half and then bruise with side of knife or heavy object to release flavor
  • 1 cup coconut milk

Seasonings:

Garnish (optional):

  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • Chopped green onion

Instructions

Preparing the soup:

  • Place the chicken stock and juice from the rotisserie chicken in a medium-size pot.  Bring to a boil and then lower the heat to simmer. Add turmeric powder, lemongrass stalks, and seasonings. Half cover with a lid and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Add coconut milk. If using shredded chicken, add in to let it heat up a bit. Don't let it boil over or your soup will turn frothy. Have a taste and adjust seasoning to your liking. If using large pieces of drumstick or chicken wings, you can add this later when ready to serve

Assembling:

  • While the soup is brewing, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Trim off the large stems of gai lan. Blanch the gai lan for 5 minutes and then refresh with cold water and set aside. In the same pot, cook the noodle of pasta according to instruction. I like to cook my noodle or pasta separately and not in the soup
  • Portion the noodle, chicken, and gail lan in an individual serving bowl. Generously ladle the hot soup over. Sprinkle with chopped green onion and serve immediately
