This is my go-to lazy tea, I never have leftover chicken so I grill some for 5 mins on each side then add to the soup. Tasty everytime!

I make this quite regularly on Sunday for lunch at work during the week, makes enough to last for 3 days. I do it a bit differently to the recipe instructions... I make the stock etc first, then put to one side. Cook egg noodles, once those are done dry fry the veg for a minute or so, just to soften slightly. Mix the veg and noddles and pour the stock over! Always tastes lovely, nice with prawns too.

Very tasty, however not that quick, was halfway through prep on a late monday evening after sports and school when I realised it had to be left overnight!

if you or family like spicy soup put a 1/4 of a teaspoon of chilli flakes in if serving to little ones just stick with the recipe I also doubled the quantity by adding chicken stock instead of chicken pieces I also added chinese five spice it might smell funky at first but it tastes delicious - by Hannah Cannon age 9
