2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice noodles

Bring a medium [large] sauce pot of water to a boil. Add the rice noodles and cook until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water, then transfer to a medium bowl and toss with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil to prevent sticking. Wipe out the pot.
While the water heats and the noodles cook, prepare the mustard greens.


Pickle the mustard greens

  • Remove any coarse stems from the mustard greens and discard; coarsely chop the greens, keeping the leaves and tender stems separate. Set aside the stems for the soup.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mustard green leaves, season generously with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the Southeast Asian quick-pickle brine, reduce the heat to medium, cover partially, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the greens are just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the mustard greens cook, start the chicken soup.


Prep and cook the chicken soup

Prep and cook instructions are identical for both chicken options.
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken crosswise into ½-inch-thick strips, then cut the strips crosswise into ½-inch cubes. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Cut away the core from the tomato; coarsely chop the tomato.
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro for garnish.
In the same pot used for the rice noodles, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons [1 to 2 TBL] oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomato, tender mustard green stems, and Burmese soup base and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has evaporated and the chicken is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the chicken broth and 1 cup [2 cups] water and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the rice noodles to individual bowls and ladle in the chicken soup. Garnish with the cilantro and as much sambal oelek as you like. Serve the pickled mustard greens on the side.
