Chicken Sotanghon

Dec 8, 2022 | Main Course, Recipes, Snacks

Chinese and Filipino immigrants brought Chicken Sotanghon to the Hawaiian islands. This dish is very similar to its original Chinese counterpart, which is why it’s one of my favorite comfort foods. It’s easy to make and is a great alternative to Chicken Soup when you’re feeling frail or cold. Try it the next time you have a craving for the chicken soup!

Chicken Long Rice is a comfort food that shares a resemblance to Chicken Noodle Soup and Chicken Stew. It’s usually served as a side dish at Hawaiian luaus, and is complemented by steamed white rice. Clear bean thread noodles are used in chicken long rice. They consist of mung bean starch and thin noodles. You can purchase glass noodles in any Asian grocery store. They’re also known as Chinese vermicelli, cellophane noodles or noodle dough.
