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.

Great recipe, easily adapted.

Made 3 x times amount. Absolutely lovely. One child with dreadful cold for the last two days woke up feeling ten times better (don't believe it's co-incidental) and the other had finished the lot. Currently making another batch. Thank you!

Very tasty - I also added dried chilli flakes for the extra kick!

It was lovely if not a little lacking in flavour

Most recipes I try go wrong but this one turned out really tasty! Thoroughly recommended, especially for those of us who are rubbish at cooking!

Delicious, healthy, cheap and filling!

Couldn't really taste the ginger or soy sauce so added more and added some carrot peelings for another colourful veggie and coriander to enhance the eastern flavour.

Shredded chicken was a lovely texture.

This could easily be adapted to suit aromatic chinese or fresh british flavours - definately a weeknight staple for me now.

This recipe is delicious. I added a small amount of chilli to mine also. I couldn't use mushrooms as I cannot eat them, however pack with spring onions, sweetcorn, ginger, basil and it is really warming and delicious, use extra chicken and rice noodles to make a meal out of it.

I love this recipe. Chicken soup is pretty much the only soup I eat so I was glad this tasted fantastic. The rest of the family liked it to.

Just Finished making this soup as wanted to have it for tomorrow nights dinner (as some of u suggested it's better the 2nd day) well I have just tasted it and WOW. Bloody handsome!!! I added one deserved red chilli at the Ginger an garlic stage and 1 more spring onion and coriander at the end! I've only had a spoonful so far but I just know it would cure any cold! Thank u so much for a fantastic, easy recipe. Also I used rice noodles an had to soak them first so didn't take up my stock as previously mentioned! X

This is the nicest chicken noodle soup I've ever made or had. Went down nicely with my 2 poorly kids last night and I swear they are better this morning!
I did double all the ingredients though and have some left over for lunch. Also, I used little vermicelli which the kids loved.

very nice and people asked for seconds. I put a little more stock and used sharwoods spicy noodles to give it a little kick

Yes Yes YES! Well done Mary. Another triumph against all the odds. Superb.

Tasty soup. Needed to add five hundred more mls of chicken stock to it. Also one tsp of soya sauce would probably be enough as it overpowered the delicate flavor of the ginger.

Added extra ginger and it was delicious. Next time will add some lemongrass too.
