  • 4 Cups Chicken broth or water
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 stalk lemongrass cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 thumb size piece of ginger diced
  • 1 star anise
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 cup spinach or kalettes
  • 1 large carrot sliced
  • 2 cups egg noodles
  • cilantro


  • Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on high for 3-4 hours. Once cooked, shred the chicken using 2 forks and remove the lemongrass stalk.
  • Boil the noodles according to the package instructions.
  • Place noodles in the bottom of a serving bowl and ladle the soup over top. Garnish with some chopped cilantro to taste or some micro herbs.


The noodles don’t have to be hot when serving. Pouring the hot soup over them will warm them perfectly for eating.
