Chicken Sopas

Chicken Sopas

Before I had posted a dish called Beef Sopas and now will be making the more popular version of this soup which is the Chicken Sopas. Sopas as I had mentioned is a Tagalog word for soup and it had originated from the Western Chicken Soup and like chicken soup it contains chicken, noodles and vegetables the difference is the amount of those ingredients where Filipinos tend to use more noodles and lesser vegetables (mostly carrots) and in most cases none. Soup is flavoured and coloured with milk as opposed to turmeric.


My daughter loves this lot and every time I ask her what she wants for next week’s menu, she would definitely include this always, so if you have kids try this at home as they will definitely like it. A very hearty soup which is recommended during cold days or to give relief to sick people. Best enjoyed on its own or with bread.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups macaroni
1 1/2 cup cooked chicken, flaked
1 carrot, chopped into small cubes
6 boiled eggs
6 cups chicken stock
1 large can evaporated milk
1 large white onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic
butter
freshly ground black pepper
salt


Method

  1. In a pot melt butter then sauté garlic and onions.
  2. Add macaroni pasta and chicken stock, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Add chopped carrots, chicken flakes simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Add evaporated milk and boiled eggs simmer for 2 more minutes.
  5. Season with salt and pepper.

    pasta in soup is always a treat for me..

  4. Lovely soup and another complete meal by its own with all those ingredients inside, sure filling up. That macaroni is not for me but sure the mee hoon or yellow noodles will be great too.

  5. I have a cold and am feeling very sorry for myself, so if I ask nicely, will you send me round a bowl please?!

    Oh, we just had this Chicken Sopas for dinner tonight. Although it wasn’t as good coz the milk I used was the powdered kind and not evap milk. The big kiddos here liked it nevertheless.

  7. PolaM says:

    I only recently made chicken broth from scratch and I finally understood the love for chicken soup! Your bowl looks very appetizing and comforting.

  8. It sounds like a delicious cousin of the Chicken Noodle Soup that lots of American kids have grown up loving and eating. I wonder just how many cultures have their own versions of chicken + pasta soups! It’s such a delicious and soothing combination that it just might be universal!

    WOW.. this chick sopas rally does look amazing. it would go great with the cold weather we’ve been having.. except for today since it was 60 degrees. Wonderful recipe

  10. Kristy says:

    I am all about more noodles and less veggies in my soup. I know my kids would be too. 🙂

  11. now im craving for one! 😀

    We love chicken sopas…. But my kids doesn’t want the chicken… Macaroni and veggies only…. Will it taste the same without the chicken???
    Thanks for sharing….

    • rsmacaalay says:

      If you will be using chicken stock yes it will taste the same, but if you want a totally vegetarian option you can use a good vegetable stock. You can also add chopped cabbages as a replacement for the chicken.

        Hi….
        Thanks for the cabbage tip…. Will do the chicken stock thing…..
        Super thanks….
        More food to come….

  13. Last week when my husband and I were both not feeling well, chicken soup was all that was comforting–it is a must during the winter!

  14. foodjaunts says:

    That looks super tasty. Next time we’re sick I’m going to keep this in mind

  15. Betty says:

    Chicken soup is the favorite at my house, and not just when somebody’s sick! When cold weather comes around, it’s requested often. Yours looks really good! I’ve never used evap. milk in mine, but it sounds like it would make it nice and creamy. Yum! 🙂

  16. Carolyn Chan says:

    How unusual to have the soup with milk ! It looks so comforting.

  17. I think your daughter is a saint. Most kids would have asked for fried chicken! This definitely looks healthy as well as delicious! And I would opt for no veges 😉

  18. Tamara says:

    Do you chop up the boiled eggs before adding them to the soup?
