Vietnamese Chicken Noodle soup ~ 越南鸡肉面条汤


With the current sweltering heat, drought and unplesant humidity no thanks to the El Nino,  I'm at a loss sometimes thinking of what to serve for dinner.  Not much appetite for rice, just longing for something soupy with a fair amount of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables, quick to prepare with not much standing in the 'toasted' kitchen .... yes  a bowl of Vietnamese Chicken Noodle for a change.
