Chicken sotanghon is a delicious chicken noodle soup served as a comfort food, or when you’re feeling a bit under the weather. The use of vermicelli noodles, and atsuete or annatto seeds makes this dish an interesting one to make. Make this one at home, kabano!
- ½ kilo Chicken Breast, boiled and torn into strips
- 2 tbsp Garlic, chopped
- ½ cup Onion, chopped
- 3 cups Chicken Stock (from boiling chicken breast)

- 200 grams Vermicelli Noodles
- 1 cup Annatto Water
- ¼ cup Green Onions, chopped

- Prepare the Annatto water by combining 2 tbsp of annatto seeds in 1 cup of water in a small saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes or until the water is changed to an orange color. Strain the annatto-infused water through a strainer and set aside.
- In a deep pot, heat oil and sauté your garlic and onion over medium heat until fragrant. Add in the chicken breast, carrots and mushrooms. Toss and cook for 3-5 minutes for flavor development.
- Pour in the chicken stock and water and let it boil for 10 minutes.
