Have you tried having fried tom yam chicken in noodle soup? This one is rather extraordinary to me, that is having fresh wantan noodles soup with tom yam flavoured fried chicken instead of the usual BBQ pork [char siew] and wantan dumplings.
I didn’t regret trying out this noodle dish cos’ it is good. Actually, it is okay to use any kind of noodles [instant or fresh noodles according to own preference], not necessary wantan noodles. 
Just blanch to cook, place on serving bowl, top with a piece of fried chicken, pour in some hot soup with a sprinkle of spring onions, that’s about all and you get to enjoy a lovely chicken noodle soup in your own kitchen.
Not many photos has been taken cos' I didn't intend to share the recipe before tasting it.  But afterwards I was prompted to write this post as I intend to prepare this noodle dish again cos' it is good and easy to prepare.
You can chopped up the fried chicken if you like but keeping it whole is more hassle free to me.
[serves 3]
3 deboned chicken whole leg – marinate with some wine and light soy sauce [ for flavour and colour]
Some chopped spring onions
Some kaffir lime leaves
2 Maggi Tom Yam cubes – mix into a thick paste with 1-2 tbsp water
600 ml water or chicken stock
3 bundles wantan noodles
  1. Bring water or chicken stock to boil and keep it simmering while you fry the chicken and blanch the noodles.
  2. Heat enough water to blanch noodles until cooked. Dish up into individual serving bowl.
  3. Heat a non-stick pan, pan fry chicken whole legs [skin side down] until oil oozes out and golden brown. Spread tom yam paste all over the chicken meat before turning over to fry the meat side until cooked, browned and gravy reduced.
  4. Pour excess tom yam paste into simmering soup, taste to adjust seasoning [salt and sugar].
  5. Place fried chicken on top of cooked noodles, add in some kaffir lime leaves, then scoop enough boiling soup into bowl and garnish with some chopped spring onions.
  6. Serve immediately.

Hi Veronica, it is not only good but hassle free with just minimal ingredients. Planning to prepare this fried chicken again to serve with rice, hmmm.......

Wow Kimmy. This looks so delish and hassle free. I like soupy noodles. Good idea instead of regular wonton and charsiew. Will try and update. Thanks. Chloe

Hi Chloe, you must try but adjust the seasoning to your own preference. Some will prefer stronger flavours while others don't. Happy cooking.

Kimmy, this looks so good! I have a bottle of tom yam paste, still not opened!

Hi Phong Hong, you can prepare fried chicken with tom yam flavour this way to serve with rice, not necessarily in noodle soup. But keep in mind the the paste may be over salty and a little oily. Using the tom yam cube is not that oily.
