I make this a lot. I usually add in other veg, bok choi is nice, mange tout, sliced ceps or courgetter. Good base recipe for playing about with.

Made this exactly to the recipe and it was extremely easy, quick and delicious.
My carrots were leftovers too so even quicker!

This was a lovely way of using the turkey leftovers and bringing in some different flavours. I added some chopped fresh ginger, a sliced leek and a pepper (because that's what I had in the fridge) along with the zest and juice of a lime and a few dried chilli flakes for a bit of a kick. I finished it off with a handful of fresh coriander and mint although you could use whatever herbs you have available. This is a recipe where you can easily use up whatever you have in the fridge and make a wonderful, tasty meal.

Just had this for supper. Not sure if it was down to the healing properties of chicken soup, but it really hit the spot. Next time I might try it with the addition of some coriander for a different twist, but it was very fine fare on a cold and wet Yorkshire evening.

This is excellent for a freezing, cold 'Winter' (it's actually Spring!) day. I substituted the noodles for vermicelli and it really filled it out... so much that we ate it with a fork! It was lovely though, real tummy-warming stuff!

Wonderful, filling soup made with the last of the delicious Christmas turkey stock. Had no leftover turkey so sliced a large chicken breast into the soup at the same time as the carrots. Lovely.

really tasty once I added some seasoning as this wasnt part of the recipe. I added chillies to it give it an extra kick.

Fab recipe, so simple to make but tastes great and enjoyed by all the family. Originally made it with stock and leftover meat from the Christmas turkey and it was delicious. Worked just as well tonight when I made it with the stock and remains of a roast chicken from earlier in the week.

Much enjoyed by the family though there were too many noodles and not enough stock for our tastes. Definitely one to do again.
