Total time: 1 hours 25 minutes
Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
|2 cups water|
|1 teaspoon salt|
|1 pound chicken legs|
|1 ounce dried shiitake mushrooms|
|8 ounces bean thread noodles (cellophane noodles)|
|3 tablespoons olive oil|
|1 onion, chopped|
|2 cloves garlic, minced|
|1 ½ teaspoons achiote powder|
|1 tablespoon fish sauce|
|salt and pepper to taste|
|2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth|
|2 green onions, chopped|
- Bring water and 1 teaspoon salt to a boil in a large pot. Add chicken legs and simmer until no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Reserving the liquid, remove chicken and allow to cool, then remove meat from the bones and shred with two forks. Discard the skin and bones.
- Meanwhile, place shiitake mushrooms in a bowl and pour enough warm water over them to cover completely; allow to soak until pliable, about 30 minutes. Remove mushrooms, reserving water; slice, and set aside. Place noodles in reserved water, adding more warm water if needed to cover; allow to soak until soft, about 10 minutes. Drain and cut noodles if desired.
- Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Add achiote powder and continue to cook and stir until the mixture is well coated. Stir in shredded chicken meat, sliced shiitake mushrooms, and fish sauce; season with salt and pepper.
- Stir in chicken broth and reserved cooking liquid from chicken. Bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Add noodles and cook 5 minutes more. Garnish with green onions.
