This is also one of my favorites to eat and make especially during our cold fall and winter months. Meal #21 which is called Chicken Long Rice is a local Hawaii favorite and is pretty much like a "Hawaiian Chicken Noodle Soup". This is really easy to make and I'm sure that your family will enjoy it. The "long rice" are bean thread noodles that are clear and can be found at at Asian grocer or in the Asian foods aisle at your local grocer. Here is a recipe that I've modified over the years and I'm certain there are other variations of this recipe as well.
CHICKEN LONG RICE
3 lbs. chicken thighs, cut into pieces
2 tbsp. garlic, minced
1/2 onion, sliced
1 medium piece ginger, cut into chunks
1/2 cup green onion, chopped
1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, soaked in hot water & sliced when soft or 2 cups fresh white mushrooms, sliced
2 cans chicken broth (more maybe needed since noodles soak up liquid)
2 pkgs. long rice (bean thread noodles)
Brown chicken and garlic in some oil. Add onions and cook until slightly tender. Add chicken broth and ginger and bring to boil. Add long rice and let it soak in broth to get soft. Add more cans of broth if needed. Add mushrooms and green onions stirring to mix. Add pepper and shoyu to taste.
