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.

This is sooo delicious! Perfect for a cold dark rainy winter sunday. I fried a load of mushrooms in butter first, then added the rest of the ingredients and some pak choi with the spring onions and noodles at the end. The combination was lovely. Definately recommend this one.

Excellent soup. I imagine it might be even nicer with a small drop of brandy, especially if on a cold day.

really nice and very easy to make, I usually put in more noodles to make it a bit more filling

Such a simple but flavoursome soup! We also like to have this with Lemon & Five Spice Chicken (June 2006) and just leave the chicken out of the soup.
