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.

I enjoyed this soup but it definately wasnt a favourite. My first problem was that I doubled the noodles, and so that left very little broth. Second to that, I didnt like the idea of just slurping up chicken stock cubes! I enjoyed the fresh flavours of the ginger, veg etc. but maybe next time I'll make my own stock or use better quality. I can, however see how it can be a cure for a cold.

Deliciously tasty and oh so simple. I also put a little bit of fresh coriander on top for a touch of Asian flavour

Absolutely great soup. Smells gorgeous! Me and my family are vegetarians so I left out the chicken, but I also left out the tofu. Adding some more veggies did the trick just perfectly.

Such a lovely recipe and so simple to make. I added a tsp of brown sugar and chopped chilli and ginger to the stock to infuse the flavours with a good handle of beansprouts and 2 chopped pak choi ..... finish with fresh coriander leaves to serve - a fantastic oriental low fat dish!!

Mary Cadogan, you genius. Delicious, quick, healthy. This dish just won't stop ticking boxes. I'll tell you what's a hoot and a half is if you try deboning a whole chicken to get the breasts needed for this dish; you get a real sense of achievement. Cracking!

Great recipe!! Not sure if I overdid it but would use about 1/2 more stock next time as the broth is just as tasty as the veg and chicken, but there didn't seem to be much 'wet' left!!

This is such a good recipe, it tastes good and is great because you can put whatever veggies in it you like.
