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 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.

Gorgeous ! I just made this for bonfire night. A wonderful way to warm up after the chill outside. I added some spring greens and used super noodles because i didn't have any other noodles but my family loved it !

One of my most favourite soup. Even when I am very ill, I can still manage to make a batch. All my household enjoy this, not just when we are poorly!!! If the cold is really nasty - I load more giger in it.

I used leek and red pepper instead of the veg in the recipe as that's what was in the fridge - yummy! Excellent comforting soup

This soup is great, I added a whole chilli at the start and cooked it with the chicken and then removed before adding the sweetcorn. It gave it a nice chilli kick, yummy!!

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
