Method

  1. Pour the stock into a pan and add the chicken, ginger and garlic. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, partly cover and simmer for 20 mins, until the chicken is tender. Remove the chicken to a board and shred into bite-size pieces using a couple of forks.
  2. Return the chicken to the stock with the noodles, corn, mushrooms, half the spring onions and the soy sauce. Simmer for 3-4 mins until the noodles are tender. Ladle into two bowls and scatter over the remaining spring onions, herbs and chilli shreds if using. Serve with extra soy sauce for sprinkling.

it worked out really well and tasted amazing, although i put a bit to much ginger and basil in it while i was cooking it, but it still was brilliant and i loved it. I will definitely make this again :)

Cheap, easy, quick, healthy and filling - perfect.

I stole the idea of adding a chilli or two off someone on here when u add the ginger and garlic and it works very well gives it a bit of an extra quick makes it even more so warming. Brilliant recipe looking forward to heating the left overs for my lunch!

I did add a bit more soy sauce (table spoon) and more noodles as 50g didn't seem that much.

This is delicious and so easy to make. I followed the recipe except I used powdered dry ginger instead of fresh. It was the perfect amount to make dinner for two.

This soup is beautiful, the only thing I changed was I used ground ginger, as when I made it with freshly chopped, it was too overpowering, and ended up painstakingly picking out all the tiny pieces!! But with the ground ginger it was absolutely perfect!!

This soup is lovely. Made it for my boyfriend when he had man flu and he loved it so i made it again when his parents came for lunch and they also really liked it. Had to double the recipe though because only got 2 bowls the first time I made it.

Soup was delicious! Will definitely make this again. I added chopped chillies at the same time as adding the garlic and ginger which gave the soup a spicy kick! Also added some beansprouts in which went very well. I also used straight to wok noodles. Thanks for the recipe! :))

Personal favorite, i could eat it every day... filling and healthy

I liked this recipe very much. I would recommend using chilli flakes at the end to give it the extra kick. (I used chilli flakes and shredded chilli). I didn't use dry noodles and used 150g of straight to wok noodles. I'm glad I did as there wasn't a lot of broth to spare doing it this way.

Also I worked out the calories myself and i worked it out as closer to 150 Kcal instead of 217. Always a bonus.

This is gorgeous! But added loads more ginger and noddles and the tip about fresh mint and basil to finish is ace-'really makes the dish! Yummy scrum

Made this last night - delicious. Nicely filling. Added a few more noodles than noted and I'd probably add more sweetcorn.

I didn't fancy the soup thing so I let the vegetable stock simmer out so it was just a noodle dish. Very nice but probably would have left the sweet corn out and replaced it with something different :)

Brilliant soup if you're feeling a little under the weather or had one-too-many the night before, equally good if you just fancy a nice flavoursome broth. So easy to make, I keep going back to this recipe again and again.

It was a lovely soup. I doubled the recipe, added 2 carrots and 3 pak choi. However, I am still considering what to put in for a little flavour kick. Otherwise, I greatly enjoyed it and it is oh so simple to prepare!
