Creamy Macaroni Soup (Sopas)

Creamy Macaroni Soup or "Sopas" in Tagalog (language in the Philippines) is one of my favorite food. Hubby loves it too. He ate bowls of it when he was in the Philippines. Today I am going to cook "sopas". Actually this is not the first time that I am cooking this here in the US. The family of my husband loved it on the first time I cooked it. I am not a cook but I am glad that I successfully cooked sopas and it really taste good too :D Thanks to this website where I got the recipe.

  • 500 g chicken breast

  • 2 cups evaporated milk
  • 1 medium cabbage (roughly shredded)
  • 2 Tbsp margarine
