  • Add garlic, chicken, 8-10 slices of ginger, scallions, rice wine and chicken stock to the Instant Pot. Add water to the pot to be sure the chicken is submerged. Careful not to go over the max line of the Instant Pot.
  • Cover the Instant Pot. Close the vent and put on high pressure for 25-30 minutes depending on how fall-off-the-bone you would like your chicken.
  • Once the Instant Pot is done, release the steam. Strain the soup into a bowl and put the chicken on a plate to cool down. Once the chicken has cooled down, pull the chicken from the bone. Break up into small pieces and chunks.
  • Heat up your large pot. Once it is hot, add chopped onions, then more ginger. 2-3 minutes. Add your chicken soup. Let reduce until desired taste. Add fishcakes and let boil for 2-3 minutes. While your chicken soup is reducing, heat up a sauté pan. Add garlic. 1 minute. Add bok choy. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 3-5 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a separate pot, cook your noodles in boiling water for 3 minutes, al dente. Strain and divide into all bowls. Add chicken, fishcake and veggies to each bowl. Pour chicken soup over each bowl. Garnish with chopped scallions and enjoy!



You don’t have to have the noodles. After strain your soup, add some cooked veggies and enjoy the soup! Add a soft boiled egg for extra yumminess.
