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 liked this recipe very much. I would recommend using chilli flakes at the end to give it the extra kick. (I used chilli flakes and shredded chilli). I didn't use dry noodles and used 150g of straight to wok noodles. I'm glad I did as there wasn't a lot of broth to spare doing it this way. Also I worked out the calories myself and i worked it out as closer to 150 Kcal instead of 217. Always a bonus.

This is gorgeous! But added loads more ginger and noddles and the tip about fresh mint and basil to finish is ace-'really makes the dish! Yummy scrum

Made this last night - delicious. Nicely filling. Added a few more noodles than noted and I'd probably add more sweetcorn.

I didn't fancy the soup thing so I let the vegetable stock simmer out so it was just a noodle dish. Very nice but probably would have left the sweet corn out and replaced it with something different :)

Brilliant soup if you're feeling a little under the weather or had one-too-many the night before, equally good if you just fancy a nice flavoursome broth. So easy to make, I keep going back to this recipe again and again.

It was a lovely soup. I doubled the recipe, added 2 carrots and 3 pak choi. However, I am still considering what to put in for a little flavour kick. Otherwise, I greatly enjoyed it and it is oh so simple to prepare!
