  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Prepare the noodles according to instructions on package. Drain and rinse through with cold water to keep from sticking. Set aside.
  3. Step 3

    Bring stock to a boil in a large soup pot. Add the prepared lemongrass, makrut lime leaves or bay leaves , and the chicken. Boil over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Reduce to medium heat and add the garlic, ginger, chile, carrot, and celery. If adding mushrooms, add them now. Simmer 2 to 3 more minutes.
  5. Step 5

    While soup is simmering, add the oyster sauce and fish sauce as well as 1/2 tablespoon sugar.
  6. Step 6

    If your baby bok choy is chopped, add only the thick white stalk pieces now (the green leaves take only seconds to cook, so reserve those for later). If using broccoli, add it now too. Continue simmering the soup 2 to 3 more minutes.
  7. Step 7

    Lastly, add the leafy greens of the bok choy. Stir and simmer 30 seconds.
  8. Step 8

    Reduce heat to low. Add the coconut milk, stirring well to incorporate. Taste-test for salt, adding more fish sauce if not salty enough. If too salty or sweet for your taste, add 1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice. If too spicy, add more coconut milk. If too sour, add another 1/2 tablespoon sugar.
  9. Step 9

    To put the soup together, mound a generous amount of the cooked noodles in each bowl. Ladle the hot soup and top with fresh coriander. This soup can be served with chili sauce on the side for those who like it extra spicy.
