Chicken Sopas : A Comforting Filipino Delight

Chicken Sopas

Like I said before, it’s been raining non-stop for three weeks now. Partially, because of the two typhoons that passed by the country. but now, it’s just the Habagat being pulled by it. The weather’s really cold and wet. That’s why I think this Chicken Sopas is long overdue…heehee.

Chicken Sopas is a classic Filipino dish that is loved by many for its comforting flavors and creamy texture. It is a hearty soup made with chicken, macaroni noodles, vegetables, and milk. Perfect for chilly days or when you’re in need of a warm and nourishing meal.


To give my sopas a small twist, I decided to mix penne and macaroni pasta in today’s recipe. It was a creative way to use up the leftover pastas I had in my kitchen, and it turned out to be a delicious amalgamation of flavors and textures.

So, the next time the rain starts pouring and the weather turns cold, make yourself a bowl of Chicken Sopas. Indulge in its creamy goodness and let it bring comfort to your soul.


  • Serve the chicken sopas hot and garnish with chopped spring onions or fried garlic for added flavor. It pairs well with toasted bread or pandesal.
  • You can also add hard-boiled egg to make it more hearty.
  • You can also try other ingredients to flavor it.. like corned beef. Try my Corned Beef Sopas Recipe
