Total: 50 mins


  • 1 lb chicken breast, or legs
  • 6 cup water
  • 2 cup macaroni, elbow, shell or straight
  • 2 tbsp butter, or margarine
  • 1 onion, medium, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, big, diced
  • 1 carrot, medium, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, (optional), chopped
  • 12 fl oz evaporated milk, 1 can
  • 1 cup Vienna sausage, sliced
  • 2 cup cabbage, chopped
  • salt, or more
  • pepper


  1. Boil chicken breast in water with a little salt and pepper. Once cooked, remove from the stock and shred meat into smaller pieces using two forks.
  2. In a pot, sauté garlic and onion in butter until tender. Add the chicken meat and noodles and cook for 5 minutes stirring from time to time to avoid burning the noodles.
  3. Add the chicken stock to the pot and cover. Once it starts to boil add carrots, bell pepper, and celery and cover again.
  4. Once the noodle is cooked al dente, add the milk and sausages. Add more salt and pepper if needed. Let it simmer for a few more minutes until the noodles are completely cooked and soup starts to thicken. Add water or milk if soup becomes too thick.
  5. Add cabbage before turning off the stove and cover. Let the cabbage cook for at least 5 minutes from the residual heat. Transfer to serving bowls.
