For me, Chicken Mami is not complete without the chopped onions and toasted garlic. These ingredients give life to this dish, as far as I am concerned. Watch the video below to learn how to make toasted garlic.

How to Cook Chicken Mami?

Making chicken mami at home is easier than you think. This recipe makes use of bone-in chicken breast and fresh noodles. I start by boiling the breast of the chicken with onion I also add a piece of Knorr Chicken Cube. This is my secret ingredient. It makes the broth tasty instantly. There is no need to cook the chicken for the entire day.

Chicken mami is always great when topped with toasted garlic. These are actually fried garlic that takes a few minutes to prepare. The recipe and video below should be able to show you how to make one.

When it comes to the fresh noodles, it is always best to cook it even for a few minutes. You can either soak the noodles in hot water or boil it for a minute.

Arrange the noodles with the sliced boiled chicken in a serving bowl. Don’t forget the Napa cabbage and carrots. Pour piping hot broth and top with green onions and toasted garlic. Yummy!
