Check out the step-by-step photos with detailed tips on the previous page.


  • 1 “kampong” or small chicken remove the skin & leave bones intact; may use a few chicken bone carcass + thighs/drumsticks/any fave cut
  • 20 grams unsalted butter
  • 2 stalks celery sliced thinly
  • 1 medium carrot peeled & cut to small chunks
  • 1 small yellow onion roughly chopped
  • 100-150 grams dried egg noodle pasta or any fave pasta
  • Italian flat-leaf parsley or any garnishing greens
  • 1 natural MSG-free chicken bouillon cube optional; only if required
  • sea salt to taste

(A) Soup Aromatics

  • 1 litre hot boiling water or low-sodium chicken stock
  • 5 cloves old garlic
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning may use dried or fresh rosemary, thyme or dill

You also need:

  • a crock pot slow-cooker


  1. Prep chicken. Blanch chicken pieces in a pot of boiling water for about 5 minutes, then rinse with cold water and set aside.
  2. Slow-cook. In a crock-pot slow cooker, add blanched chicken and all the ingredients at (A). Cook at “High” for at least three hours (starting from the time when the soup starts bubbling), then set to simmer at “Low” or “Auto” for a few hours or until ready to serve. Season with salt and/or chicken bouillon cube (only if required).
  3. Cook the noodles. Add 1 tsp sea salt to a pot of boiling water. Add pasta/noodles and cook according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  4. Shred the chicken. When the chicken is tender, take them out of the crockpot. Shred the chicken with fingers or a fork when cooled to handle.
  5. To serve, add the cooked noodles and shredded chicken back to the crock pot to heat up, then dish them to serving bowls. Alternatively, add cooked noodles and shredded chicken to individual serving bowl and ladle the hot soup over. Garnish with parsley.

  1. The soup looks clear, fresh and delicious!

  2. Hi thx for sharing your recipe. Planning to try it. But notice you mention a natural, msg free chicken bouillon cube. Where can I find that?

    • Hi, the easiest & cheapest to get is Knorr’s No Added MSG chicken cube, they are everywhere. Or go to NTUC Finest/Cold Storage/Jasons, they sell imported brands of natural chicken cube, usually made in USA or Australia.

  3. Hello!

    Thank you so much for all the hard work put into making and updating your website:)

    Came across this because I am going to study and live abroad in a self-catered college but I am an absolute noob in the kitchen. I didn’t learn anything in home economics class all those years ago:/ Your how-to section is my favourite! it has valuable information I cannot find in many cookbooks.

    I was hoping to find a list of essential items a (Singaporean) college/university student on a tight budget (or very basic items a noob cook) would need in the kitchen. Would a chopping board, knife, ladle, slotted turner, pot, frying pan, vegetable peeler, measuring spoon, rice cooker (+slow cooker combi) be all I need to buy to use all, if not most of your recipes? Sorry, this is kinda worse than your typical noob question! Please don’t judge me too harshly >.<


    • Hi and thank you! Sounds like you have most essentials covered. You probably also need a weighing scale (a digital one will be a great investment in the long run if your budget permits). If there are thrift stores such as Daiso there, you can add on more tools when the need arises. I just survived 1 month in Taipei last year, over there I bought a $2 Daiso 2-in-1 kitchen weighing scale which also doubles up as a measuring cup :D

  4. ” too lazy to cook, even lazier to go out ” – that’s me too ! really! ;)

    You know, in your last post when you talk abt making chicken soup in slow-cooker,it got me the urge to buy a slow-cooker (used to have one but don’t know where it is already – since long time never use). Maybe I will just get a small one (cheaper), so that even if under-utilized, will not use up too much kitchen space . Also will not feel I have wasted money on something I don’t use to often. ;p

    • You should get one! It’s a life saver for lazy people like us (haha). And it will come in handy for you in the colder winter months. I think you can splurge a little on the crock-pot brand since you are in the US. To prevent these gadgets from becoming a white elephant, I placed my slow cooker on a kitchen trolley instead of hiding it inside the cabinet. It’s a constant reminder whenever I am in the kitchen :D

  5. Can you show a pic of the egg pasta? Thanks !

  6. Thanks so much!
