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 simply beautiful. Mary is my favourite on here. Her recipes are mainly easy enough for me and the results are always fantastic. I made a schoolboy errror and added 1 tbsp of fresh ginger instead of 1 tsp. I love ginger and prefer it with the extra pow!

10/10!! Thank you Mary.

ridiculously easy to make. tripled all ingredients so that it'd last a couple of days..had to add lots of salt and chilli to make it flavoursome though. will add pak choi next time.

Wow, this was delicious! Used tiger prawns instead of chicken and replaced the mushrooms and spring onions with mangetout and half a red chilli. Ready within 15 mins.

Amazing. I doubled the quantities. Used 500ml of posh chicken stock in a clear bag and a litre of M&S concentrate from a jar. Added a pak choi, half a red chilli and the whole thing tasted heavenly.

Comfort on a plate. It is really hard to believe that such a simple dish with so few ingredients could taste so absolutely fabulous. I only had Udon noodles in the cupboard, but they were really lovely with the soup. Next time will try with wheat noodles to see if the taste is different. Mary Cadogan does it again!!

Tasty and very simple to make. I tripled the ingredients to have supplies for rest of the week for me and workmates. Everybody loved it. Even had to share recipe already.

Next time will make with a few of the suggested twists

I used chicken thighs instead which I think add more flavour, plus added some fresh coriander at the end

Great recipe, chopped up all the ingredients the evening before I planned to make this, then it was quick and easy to make once I got in from work the next day. Added a chopped chilli and some sliced pepper, and after reading other reviews slightly increased the amount of chicken and noodles in the recipe to make it a bit more substantial. Really scrummy and definitely a recipe I'll be making again

Great Recipe! I made it for my boyfriend with 'man flu'. I added a little more ginger, peas and topped with some lambs lettuce to finish. He said it was the best soup he'd ever had! But that could have been the 'man flu' talking! :)

I would definitely say you need to double the ingredients to get a decent amount out of it. To make it extra hearty for winter I used udon noodles, pak choi, some meaty chicken thighs and I would go double on the ginger next time. Still delicious and very simple to make.
