  • 1 chopped fresh ginger 2 inch
  • 4 diced garlic cloves
  • 3 shallots
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 baby bok choy

  • 6 baby corn shoots
  • 1 medium grated carrot
  • 1 package fine egg noodles 8 ounce
  • 2 Tablespoons light soy
  • 2 Tablespoons kecap manis
  • 1 Tablespoon Chinese cooking wine
  • 2 thinly sliced red chili peppers
  • ½ cup shredded coriander leaves
How to Make It
Before preparing this recipe you will need to rinse the vegetables, remove any veins and seeds and then chop, dice or slice the vegetables separately and then set aside until needed.
Combine the baby bok choy, thinly sliced snow peas, bean shoots, thinly sliced red bell pepper, baby corn shoots, and grated carrot in a large serving bowl and toss. Add enough cold ice water to cover the vegetables and then set aside until needed.
Using a large wok, saucepan or skillet you will add the chicken broth, chopped fresh ginger, diced garlic cloves, 2 inch strips of shallots and star anise. Bring mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to the lowest setting and allow the mixture to simmer slowly for about 10 minutes. Stir gently while cooking. Remove from heat and allow the mixture to cool for several minutes. If you are using a smaller wok, saucepan or skillet you can do this step in two sets if you like.
After cooking the chicken, strain the chicken broth and return to the pan. After cooling the chicken, reheat the chicken broth and then add the egg noodles and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove egg noodles from broth and rinse with cold water. Drain thoroughly.
Using a large glass serving bowl you will add the prepared ingredients for the oriental chicken salad and the shredded coriander leaves. Toss well to combine. Using a small mixing bowl you will add the light soy, kecap manis and Chinese cooking wine. Mix well and then pour this dressing mixture over the entire chicken salad and toss once more to blend well.
Garnish with the thinly sliced red chili peppers. Serve immediately to family, friends, or dinner guests.
