Units Scale

Toppings (optional)

  • 1/2 cup red onion, slivered
  • 1 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1/8 cup cilantro
  • 1/3 cup mung bean sprouts
  • black pepper, freshly ground


  1. Heat bone broth in a Dutch oven over medium high heat. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer. Add bone-in chicken breast halves, garlic, ginger, and five spice powder. Simmer 30 minutes, straining foam and scum that rises to the surface. These are coagulated proteins leaching from the bones and flesh. Remove chicken and cool. Skim one last time to get a clear broth.
  2. While chicken is poaching in the bone broth, rinse and drain shirataki noodles under cold water. Add sesame oil, sambal oelek and noodles to bone broth. Shred or chop chicken. Discard bones and skin or reserve for another stock. Return chicken to soup. Serve topped with your choice of optional toppings. Each bowl gets noodles, chicken, broth and a chopped fresh cilantro and green onion, slivered red onion and fresh bean sprouts. Sriracha or sambal oelek sauce on the side is never out of place.


Use fettuccine or linguine shaped shirataki noodles in this dish and see how authentic it feels! We really love Pasta Zero, noodles made from chick pea flour and glucomannan powder, but they can be difficult to find.
