Chicken Laghman - Oriental thick soup is either a noodle with a thick vegetable sauce and pieces of chicken meat, or a noodle soup with vegetables and chicken, in general, it all depends on the amount of broth added. If you want to lagman for the second, then reduce the amount of broth in the recipe by half, and for a thick soup for four people, about 1.5 liters of chicken broth will suffice.
Traditionally, homemade noodles for the lagman are made very thin. However, in our hectic days, there is not always time to make homemade pasta. In addition, the finished pasta is not inferior to homemade, for example, thin spaghetti fit just right.
