Chicken Sotanghon Soup (Vermicelli soup)

Who does not love sotanghon and who says it is only served on special occasions? Sotanghon is very affordable just like the pancit bihon and canton and can be cook anytime we want and not for special day only.

Sotanghon , also called vermicelli is as popular as pancit noodles in the Philippines. It can be cook like pancit guisado(sauteed noodles) or soup. My mother loves to cook a soup out of it with "kasubha" (Philippines local saffron) for coloring and a lot of ginger and shredded chicken topped with green onions.

One thing that I like in my place is, Walmart sells Asian products including vermicelli. Like in my other recipe, I love trying on different ingredients and spices and try to make it as healthy as possible for my families sake.
