  • Pour the chicken bone broth into a pan. Add the half shallot, garlic, ginger and enough fish sauce to get the balance that you like. Heat everything together to reach boiling point.
  • Slide in the chicken thigh fillets. Turn the heat down immediately so that the temperature is below simmering. The chicken fillets need to poach, not boil.
  • Cover the pan and allow the chicken fillets to poach for 10 minutes. Scoop them out and transfer to a cutting board. Allow to rest for five minutes before cutting into half-inch slices.
  • Divide the cooked egg noodles between two bowls.
  • Arrange the sliced chicken fillets on top of the noodles, and the blanched cabbage on one side.
  • Spread the chicken with ginger-scallion sauce.
  • Pour in hot broth.
  • Drizzle in chili oil.
  • Serve your Hainanese-style chicken noodle soup at once.
