Simple BeeHoon Soup (ABC Chicken Soup)

Ever since I've been down with this Influenza A virus, I haven't been able to stomach rice. I will throw up. I've been having spaghetti or beehoon with chicken soup. My son has been asking for noodles. And my husband too. Somehow this virus has changed our system.

ABC Chicken Soup


1. 1 whole range-free chicken (cut into quarters - without skin and all fats removed)
2. 3 medium sized old potatoes (skin peeled and cut into 4 parts)
3. 2 medium sized carrots (peeled and cut into chunks)
4. 1 celery stick (peeled and cut into about the same size as carrots)
5. 1/4 cup of barley
6. Sea-salt (depending on pot size and individual taste)
7. Filtered water (amount depending on pot size)


1. In a large pot, add all the ingredients above. Make sure everything is submerged.

2. Boil for 2 hours

3. *You can add eggs into the soup by using the 'drop egg' method. Or you can just break an egg(s) directly into the soup without breaking the yolk while the soup is being boiled during the 2nd hour.

While the soup is being cooked, you can prepare the beehoon by soaking it in a container of water. Once it has softened, drain the water away and set aside.

In a bowl, add some of the beehoon and scoop some boiling soup onto the beehoon until it is submerged in the soup.

Bon appétit!
