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.

The nicest soup I've made in a while. The whole family enjoyed it. Will definitely make it again and again

A great soup - very simple, very quick and tastes good (especially the next day!).

Should I use 50g of fresh or dried noodles. I'm also thinking about adding some beansprouts. Anyone tried this?

I honestly can't cook. This soup is amazingly easy to make. I added a few more noodles then suggested and ended up needing a fork to eat the soup with.. Lovely comfort food just as it is.. :)

I found cooking the chicken and the noodles in the stock absorbed most of the liquid and left this more like a stew so next time I make this I think I'll cook the chicken separately and get some straight to wok noodles rather than dried. Other than that it was absolutely delicious - real comfort food and there wasnt a single bit left! They say chicken soup is good for the soul - this certainly is!

A good soup to make with left-over bits from a roast chicken. A really easy soup to make which the whole family enjoy. The only variation I have made is to saute the onions first for about 20mins - I do this for all the soups I make as it enhances the flavor. I also make it the night before so the flavors develop. Worth a shot.

This is a great soup - easy to make and the family loved it. I do this soup allot and the only changes I have made is to sautee the onions/springonions first for about 20minutes - I do this for all my soups and I think it enhances the flavour

Amazing soup! My kids LOVE this recipe a big pot gets made most weeks. I double the recipe for a family of four (we alway's go back for seconds!) the only change I make is more ginger.

I was out of mushrooms, so used carrots, broccoli and spinach. Fresh chili gave a nice kick to it. I might also try it with oyster sauce and pak choi. Easy, quick and healthy dinner for two. Thanks!

A very good soup and a nice change from the blended soups I normally make. Will try and make with miso soup mix next time as I suspect it may taste better again.

This was so simple but yet so delicious, it went down quite a treat with my boyfriend who helped himself to 2 extra servings and finished the lot. I added more an extra chicken breast as I'm quite greedy but I'm glad I did as I filled it out more. Also due to preference I didn't add any sweetcorn, and added a small red onion for extra colour to the dish. To help with colds I recommend serving this with a large glass of chilled orange juice.

I made this yesterday as my boyfriend has man flu (And to be honest he was very ill) I made him this soup as I have made it before and loved it. Well within a couple of hours he was feeling loads better after eating this soup. Not only does it taste amazing it works wonders. He said he could eat it all day :)

I added extra chicken and mushrooms to make it more filling. Very tasty and easy to make and was just as good the next day. Will make it again.
