Easy Chicken Soup (Malay-Style)

This is by far the easiest malay-style chicken soup - just 3 bulbs of soup spice pouches with some garlic, shallots and black peppercorn. Voila, here you have a yummylicious comforting chicken soup ala malay style!

This recipe is great when you have a sudden craving for a nice bowl of hot piping chicken soup. The soup is really rich and I love how the taste of the spices comes in after the chicken. It is not too overpowering but just a subtle flavor of the spices, enough to compliment the chicken and give this soup a robust taste.

You may drink this soup as it is, or with some rice, bread or even noodle of your choice. I've blanched some thick meehoon and bean sprouts to make my own chicken meehoon soup. And if you haven't known me yet, I must have my spicy black chilli soy sauce to goes with my noodle soup (malay-style). Ahh... yummmmy!!
