Bring to a boil and add in the chicken thighs.
Allow to boil on high heat for 15 minutes before switching to low heat to simmer for 2 hours.

Lastly add salt to taste, if required.
To cook mee-sua, boil a pot of water. Add in the vermicelli. Cook an additional minute after vermicelli float up. Drain mee-sua in a colander and portion into serving bowls, pour herbal chicken soup and meat and… It’s ready to be served!
