Let’s start preparing our breakfast!
Step 1- Marinate the chicken & hard boil an egg
In a clean bowl, add the chicken and all of the seasoning. Mix well and leave it to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Tip- To save time in the mornings, you can marinate the chicken the night before and leave it in the fridge. That will allow the chicken to absorb more flavour and you can catch a few more minutes of beauty sleep!
While the chicken is marinating, fill a saucepan with water and bring it to a boil. Add in an egg and let it boil for 8 minutes.
Once cooked, put the egg in a bowl of lukewarm water to cool off. Deshell it and set aside.
Step 2- Cook the mee sua
In a saucepan, add the chicken stock and water and let it boil before lowering the heat to bring the soup to a simmer.
Add in the mee sua and cook it for a quick 30 seconds. Remove the noodles and place them in a serving bowl.
Tip- do not over cook the mee sua as they can turn soggy very quickly.
Now, add in the chicken slices and vegetables to the soup and turn up the heat. Once the soup starts to boil and your chicken and vegetables are cooked through, turn off the heat.
Pour in a bottle of BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken and give the soup a good stir.
Tip- it is important that the soup does not come to a hard rolling boil here as high heat will destroy the nutrients of the Essence of Chicken. If your soup has boiled, allow it to cool down slightly before adding in the Essence of chicken.
BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken is made from an all-natural extract of fine quality chicken that has been hygienically processed under high temperatures. That means it is the perfect ingredient for food preparation that can be consumed straight from the bottle at room temperature, chilled, or warmed!
It is also fat-free and cholesterol-free with no added artificial chemicals or preservatives, making it a very healthy ingredient that is aligned with your healthy dishes. With BRAND’S®, there is no quicker or better way to take care of your health no matter how busy your schedules get!
Step 3- Assemble and serve
Once the soup is done, the dish is ready to be served!
Arrange the vegetables and meat on the mee sua and pour the soup over them. Cut the egg into half and place them on top.
Lastly, garnish with some fried shallots and your breakfast is ready!
We love how such simple ingredients and be transformed into a healthy yet delicious the Mee Sua Soup. It is very comforting and reminds us of homecooked family celebrations.
Adding BRAND’S® Essence of Chicken to the soup also intensifies its flavour giving it a nourishing and rich taste that warms the mind and soul. It tastes as though we have been boiling the soup for hours and with more complicated ingredients!
With such a soul-warming and energising breakfast, this is the best way to start your day right!
