  • ​1 lb Shanghai noodles, or very thin noodles
  • 2 tbsps oil
  • 8 oz cooked chicken, cubed
  • 6 oz Chinese white cabbage or ordinary white cabbage, shredded
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • #Seasoning#
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsps Shao Hsing wine or dry sherry (optional)
  • ½ tsp monosodium glutamate
  • 2 tsps light soy sauce


  • #A warming soup enhanced by filling noodles.# Add the noodles to a large pan of boiling water. Stir to loosen the bundles and boil for 4-5 minutes. (The noodles should be just tender but not overcooked.) Drain noodles well.
  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in the wok and fry the chicken for 1-2 minutes. Remove the chicken and then fry the cabbage in the same oil for 2 minutes.
  • Add the seasoning ingredients and stir fry for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until the cabbage is tender. Add the stock and bring to the boil.
  • Divide noodles among 6-8 warm soup bowls and add the hot soup. Serve immediately. #COOK’S TIP# Monosodium glutamate just adds that little bit of extra “bite” to the flavor of a dish.
