My first time making this chicken noodle soup in a jar. It took longer than expected because I decided to make the chicken soup from scratch rather than something from instant powder.
The inspiration for this lunch jar came from Buzzfeed Food. Just add hot water and voilà! Yummy hot noodles.
The only thing I forgot to do was add salt to the chicken stock. Oh well.
I decided to try baking a chicken like how it’s done as a Beggar’s Chicken but this time, using Tom Yam seasoning and using Limau Parut (kaffir lemon) as well as Lemongrass (Serai) to give it a sourish flavour. It turned out a lot better than I had expected.

A simple chicken that was marinaded in miso paste. I also added in some organic tofu that was mixed with pumpkin. I think I prefer the seaweed tofu rather than this one.
I realized that when it comes to cooking, I just wing it and never really put down measurements to when I’m actually cooking unless it’s a complicated this. This one wasn’t. Just add half tablespoon of miso paste into the chicken. For stirfy, fry ginger and then chicken bits. Then add in the tofu with some water. I like pepper so added some pepper powder in. The spring onions were just cut into strips and then soaked in cold water to make them curl. But I think the older leaves didn’t curl properly so that’s what it looked like.
Yep, this was a lunch protein source to make lunch a good square meal. Back in university, a friend of mine taught me how to make the lemon sauce from scratch, rather than relying on the lemon sauce from the bottle. The only problem is that a lot of sugar is needed so I cut out a lot of sugar.
The chicken was pan-fried after being seasoned with pepper. The sauce is made up of purple shallots, garlic and ginger with 1 squeezed up lemon juice. I think I also added in about 1/2 teaspoon of cornflour to thicken the sauce up as well as 1-2 teaspoon of brown sugar. The pink stuff you see there was the result of the onions getting discolored by the lemon juice.
