Chopsui’s name literally translates to “assorted pieces” – and for good reason. Since its inception in China, this dish has spread all over the world thanks to its ease of preparation and affordable ingredients. Even humble carinderias or cafeterias in the Philippines serve chopsway daily as a meal. Not only is this a tasty and satisfying lunch, but it’s full of the nutrients that make healthy food taste so good.

Quail eggs are another popular chopsui ingredient. The soft texture and creamy taste of these bite-sized treats make for a great addition to this harmony of ingredients.

How to cook Chopsui with chicken and broccoli

To prepare all the ingredients for chopsui, you need to cut a lot into slices and cubes. After chopping 4 ounces of chicken breast, cut 2 pieces of carrots crosswise. You will need to chop red and green bell peppers, as well as a piece of onion. Chop the cabbage and garlic, and boil the quail eggs.

Now that you’re ready, heat 3 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion. Once the layers separate, add the garlic pieces and continue until the onions are even softer. When done, add the chicken breast pieces, fry, stirring, until the outside is browned. Pour in the soy sauce and oyster sauce (2 tablespoons each), then a glass of water. After stirring continuously, cover the pan with a lid and bring the chopsui to a boil. Once boiling, add the Knorr Chicken Cube and cook over medium heat until the sauce has reduced by half.
