Celebrate Mid-Autumn Reunion with Swanson

Finally after about 2 months of preparation such as drafting, cooking, tasting and photoshoot on the dishes, my 1st set of Recipes booklet with "Swanson Clear Chicken Broth" is available at major supermarkets island wide. The launch of this Quick Meals by Swanson recipes is to enable consumers to cook up something fast and yet nutritious for the family during Mid-Autumn Reunionor anytime of the day.

In this recipes booklet it consists of 2 soup and 2 noodle dishes whereby I would share with you two of the related recipes that are available in the booklet such are:-


This is one of my favourite comfort dish which I can have it anytime of the day such as breakfast or lunch. And with the help of Swanson Clear Chicken Soup Broth it actually helps to cut down cooking time on boiling the chicken stock and you can even serve this mee suah soup with just vegetable without adding any meat.

Serving: 2                Preparation Time: 15 minutes

2 Cans of Swanson Clear Chicken Broth
1 Can Water
2 Bundles of Mee Suah
2 Chicken Drumstick, cut into pieces
5 Slices of Ginger, sliced
1 Tablespoon of Wolfberries
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1 Packet of Shimeji Mushroom, optional

1. Heat up sesame oil in a preheated medium saucepan, sauté ginger over low heat till fragrant.

2. Stir in chicken pieces and cook for about 3 minutes stirring a few times until the chicken pieces change slightly brown in colour.

3. Add in combine Swanson Clear Chicken Broth and water, cover and simmer over medium low heat for 8 minutes or until chicken pieces are cooked through.

4. When the chicken pieces are ready, add in mee suah and cook for 1 minute before toss in wolfberries and shimeiji mushroom.

5. Give the mixture a few stirs, turn off the heat and ladle mixture into serving bowls and serve hot.


I often cook this dish using claypot as I love the pipping hot noodles sizzling in the claypot especially during rainy seasons. You can even mix and match the ingredients that you prefer instead of using array of seafood but the adding of Chicken Broth is definitely something worth investing and trying in order to make your noodles more tasty.

Serving: 2                       Preparation Time: 20 minutes

500g Flat Yellow Noodles

1. Season lean pork lightly with soy sauce, ground pepper, cornflour and cooking wine.

2. Bring a pot of water to boil, blanched yellow noodles for about 30 seconds, remove and rinse with cold water. Set aside.

3. Heat up frying pan with ½ tablespoon of oil, sauté minced garlic till fragrant before adding in combine of Swanson Clear Chicken Broth and water.

4. Increase the heat and bring the soup broth to boil, add in lean pork giving it a quick stir to separate the lump into individual pieces.
