Jay Secret Recipe

We have seen MeePok sharing his Coca-Cola Chicken recipe and I reciprocated with my Char Kway Png recipe in his comment section.

It is time to share another Jay Secret Recipe

*applause with theme music playing*



Le Nouille de Poulet avec du Potage de Gerber*

Ingredients
200g Chicken Breast
1 Pack of Maggi Instant Noodle (Chicken Flavour)
1 Egg
Mixed vegetables
Spring onions
Sesame Seed Oil
White Pepper
Oregano Leaves
Coriander Leaves
1 Gerber Chicken Noodle <-- Secret Ingredient!

Boil chicken breast then hand shred them. Leave that aside.

Boil a pot of water with the mixed vegetables inside. When water come to a boil, add in the packet of instant noodles into the pot.

Once noodle is fully cooked, add in the instant noodle's seasoning and empty the whole bottle of the Gerber Chicken Noodle together with the chicken shreds.

Simmer for 2 minutes on low.

Crack the egg into the pot and close the lid to let it simmer on low for another 2 minutes.

Garnish with a pinch of chopped spring onions and some leaves of the coriander. Splash a dash of sesame seed oil as well as a sprinkle of  white pepper.

Bon Appetite!

*(Translate: The Chicken Noodle with Soup of Gerber)


Ok ok... for those who still haven't realised. Gerber Chicken Noodle is baby food. Yes the mushy mushy horrible colour gooey thing that they put in glass jars.

It all happen one fine day during NS, many years ago. A time when my brain was put on hiatus for a period of exactly 2-1/2 years. There I was in the baby food section of the Coronation Plaza NTUC supermarket on my weekend off when this particular bottle of Chicken Noodle caught my eye.

With my brain twiddling it's imaginary thumbs for the longest time, I was thinking...

"Hmm.... I can't seemed to remember what this baby food tastes like. I vaguely remember eating it but I have absolutely no recollection what it tastes like."

With that, a bottle of it popped into my basket.

That evening, I opened the bottle and put a scoop of the goo into my mouth and....

"Eh? How come no taste one??!!"

Then it occurred to me that since baby's stomach still not able to handle food properly yet, there would no sugar nor sodium nor MSG. Hence, the taste would be bland.

In a way, it wasn't really edible but it seemed like such a waste to throw it away and so I chucked it into the fridge among many other things that I chucked in there over the years (yuck!).

It just so happened that evening that I got hungry in the middle of the night and decided to cook a packet of instant noodles for supper. So I opened the drawer and grabbed a packet at random. It was Maggi Chicken Flavour Noodle. Again, thumb-twiddling brain started to play a game of word association...

"Maggi Noodle Chicken Flavour = Chicken Noodle = Gerber Chicken Noodle?..."

So I thot since both also chicken noodle, that means can mix lor. And that's exactly what I did. Surprise, surprise, the soup became exceptionally yummy. What originally was bland baby food, turned out in its full glory when added into the instant noodles soup base.

kIm: You also another lazy bum. :(
Marmite very yummy. If you take beef, you can also try Bovril, the beef equivalent of Marmite. More frangrant in my opinion.

MQube: Ah... another new visitor. Welcome!
One disclaimer though, the last time I did this was like more than 10 years ago. Not sure if Gerber got modify their chicken noodle since the last time.
Sekali, now not nice liao. Keep us updated ok?

My contribution... buy a can of campbell soup, no need those cream based pasta sauce. buy pasta.
Boil water, add salt and oil, dump pasta inside, fish out pasta when cooked.
boil soup, add whatever ingredients u wan inside. Cooked liao then dump over pasta.
Wah la! Cream based pasta. wahahahahah!!
* additional: Pour over pasta, sprinkle cheese over the whole thing. Dump into oven and bake for a few minutes or till cheese all melted. Wah la! Baked Pasta!

Uncle Jay: Expired liao, of cos bland became tasty lah.
Reminds me of that time when my friend was eating cup noodles in front of me. She kept telling me how yummy hers was. Unconvinced, I took a sip of the soup. My next response was to immediately check the expiry date on the wrapper.
First time I knew expired food actually can taste better to some people. You another "special" one.

akk: I thought your bread machine spoil liao?
