This spicy chicken noodle soup is a different version of jjambbong. Since my husband doesn’t eat much seafood, I made a similar noodle dish using chicken instead of seafood like jjambbong. Fortunately, my husband liked it and I wanted to share this recipe with you. Like my other recipes, the homemade broth gives the soup great flavor – artificial seasonings cannot beat it. 😀 It has a good combination ingredients and nutrients. 😀
Yield: 2 Servings
Short Korean Lesson
- YeoReum (여름) = Summer
- GyeoWool (겨울) = Winter
- Fresh or Frozen Thick Noodles for 2 People
- 1 Chicken Breast
- 1 Cup Onion
- 1 Cup Cabbage
- 1 Cup Zucchini
- ½ Cup Carrot
- 2 Green Onions
- 6 Cups Water
- 4 Garlic Cloves
- 1 Green Onion
- ½ tsp Peppercorns
- ⅛ Onion
- 1½ Tbsp Red Pepper Powder
- 1 Tbsp Hot Pepper Oil
- 2 Tbsp Soup Soy Sauce
- 1 tsp Sesame Oil
- 1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
- ⅛ tsp Salt
Chop 1 cup of onions, 1 cup of cabbage, 1 cup of zucchini, ½ cup of carrot, and 2 green onions into bite-sized pieces.
To make the broth, start with 6 cups of water and add 4 cloves of garlic, 1 green onion, ½ tsp of peppercorns, and ⅛ of an onion.
Add the chicken breast and boil it on medium-high.
Once it starts to boil, cook for 25 minutes.
25 minutes later, remove the cooked chicken and throw away the other vegetables and peppercorns.
Cut or tear apart the chicken into bite-sized pieces.
Boil the thick noodles for about 5 minutes on high. Depending on your noodle brand, follow the instruction and cook 2 minutes less than what the package said. 1 group of noodles was enough for the two of us.
Meanwhile, pour the broth into a pan, and cook on high.
Add all of the ingredients for the seasoning: 1½ Tbsp of red pepper powder, 1 Tbsp of hot pepper oil, 2 Tbsp of soup soy sauce, 1 tsp of sesame oil, 1 Tbsp of minced garlic, and ⅛ tsp of salt.
Once the broth starts to boil, add the chicken and the rest of the vegetables except for the green onion. The broth will cool because of the additions, so when the soup starts to boil again cook it for 5 more minutes on high.
Rinse the noodles in cold water once and drain them. This helps give the noodles good texture.
Add the noodles into the soup.
Add the green onions and cook for 2 more minutes.
It is done. 😀
Oh, it looks delicious. Try this recipe whenever you are hungry for spicy noodle soup. 😉 Thanks!
