Bah Kut Teh Recipe #2: Bak kut teh ramen with chicken drumstick and egg
This is the second meal that we usually have after a bak kut teh cooking session. Remember the first recipe of chik kut teh with oily chicken rice? You’ll still have a lot of leftover BKT soup after that so here’s a quick and easy meal for breakfast!
Take a chicken drumstick out of the fridge and dump it straight into the leftover soup. I didn’t defrost it so as you can see, the intense change from freezing cold to boiling hot warped the bone of the chicken. Heh! You just need to boil this on high heat for 3 minutes for the chicken to cook.
Next, transfer the cooked chicken drumstick and a bit of bak kut teh soup into a smaller cooking pan. I do this to avoid stray bits of noodles from going into the main BKT pot. Crack an egg into the new pan of soup for a more complete ramen meal. It’s probably wise to use low heat now if you like your eggs to be firm and yet have a runny yolk.
The final step is to open a packet of ramen and put the brick of instant noodles into the soup. The best thing about this is that the BKT soup is more than tasty enough to stand on its own and as a bonus, you have extra ramen flavor sachets which you can use in the future. I love eating 3 packets of instant noodles with 4 packets worth of flavor sachets. 😀
Let it cook for about 3 minutes and you’ll have a healthier version of ramen – a hearty bak kut teh broth ramen with chicken drumsticks and an egg. You can also try adding crab sticks if you like your breakfast ramen with more condiments. It’s delicious! 🙂

that is so easy to cook but looks super yummy. drool worthy. ^_^
Heh! Yeah, this is Cooking 101. 😉
It’s good coz sometimes you’re really busy so you just want to bang out something quick from the kitchen.
Thus, we have this routine where we cook BKT and use it for three meals. It serves 4-6 people so it’s perfect for a 3 meal recipe. 😀
Yup…I like BKT with instant noodles…and my daughter too. She would have that at the shops, wouldn’t touch the rice.
Yeah, it’s pretty good eh? I like to think it’s a bit healthier than regular instant noodles too if you add a bit of veggies into it like bak choy.
Oh, how do you order it at ths shops? I mean do the BKT shops have noodles too? I didn’t know that! I thought they only had rice. Interesting!
I’ll try and order that next time! Thanks for the tip! 🙂
You should boil the noodles seperately…. in case the wax gets into the soup.
No worries there, I seperate the main BKT soup out before I put the brick of freeze dried noodles in. 🙂
I only cook the chicken drumstick in the original BKT pot and when that’s done, I take out the chicken and a bit of the broth and pour it into a smaller pan for easier cooking e.g. in Photo #2 and Photo #3.
I do it for a different reason though – I don’t want stray bits of noodles to run amok in the main pot and contaiminate it and later finding bloated pieces of it. Hmm…I should probably add that bit in. Heh!
Thanks Michelle! 🙂
Wise way to use the BKT stock, they do have BKT instant noodle but it’s too salty.
Yeah, we have way too much leftover BKT stock, the package is meant to create soup for 4-6 people so that goes to about 3 servings for us. 🙂
Hey, I haven’t seen BKT instant noodles around. Interesting! Does it taste like the real thing?
I’ve gotta try that if I ever come across it.
However, I think making it with BKT broth that has been cooked with chicken before would taste better though coz of all the tastes imparted by the meat, making the soup heartier. 🙂
Well the instant noodle one, has the herbal taste but I found it too overwhelming. There’s this brand named A1 that has BKT instant noodle, you can try it and compare but your should win hand over heel.
Yeah have tried A1 but it can’t compare coz this uses fresh ingredients. 🙂
I agree with Michelle that you should cook the mee separately. It’s not so much of contaiminating the main pot of soup but it’s not to ingest the wax into your body… Not good to have too much chemicals in your system.
The noodles are cooked seperately bro. 🙂
You can see the difference in Photo #2 and #3 – it’s taken out of the main BKT pot and put into a smaller pan.
…unless you mean cook the noodles seperately from the soup e.g. blanch the noodles in just plain boiling hot water and then take out only the cooked noodles and add it into the BKT soup?
I’ve seen people do that! They’ll cook instant noodles in just hot water and add the sachets after.
Hmm…I didn’t know it was to avoid ingesting wax. Cheers for that! 🙂
I’m pretty sure I’ll be too lazy to do that though, I eat pretty unhealthily as it is, but thanks for the tip mate! 🙂
hey HB check out my latest Epic meal time related food post! you’d have a laugh!
Cheers mate! I shall surf over when I’m not stealing wifi. Heh. I’m in Gold Coast now bro. 🙂
woah! nice enjoy yourself!
Would be even nicer to add some shitake mushrooms into the soup!
Yup! That’s the best thing can easily customize this dish. Thanks Lynthia. 🙂
Btw, I just had bak kut teh for my dinner cooked by my senior. And shitake mushrooms are wonders! Love how it supplements the herbal taste.
