My sister in law once made this oriental chicken noodle soup for me when I was ill. The nice gesture has always stuck with me, as did the delicious recipe. This is a great go to mid-week dinner recipe for the whole family as it is a balanced meal all in one pot, from carbs to protein to veggies. My fussy eater child likes this (minus the chilli) so I only have to make one dinner with this one!
The flavours in this oriental chicken noodle soup aren’t too strong but create a really nice depth of flavour. The garlic, ginger, spring onion and soya sauce create a lovely hum of asian taste. You can make it as mild or as spicy as you like by adding the fresh chilli at the end.
Adding the tamari/soya sauce at the end just brings this whole dish together to give it a real oriental taste. The one I use is Clearsprings Organic Tamari Soya Sauce. I found this in Morrisons, it gives lovely flavour and is wheat and gluten free.
Make this recipe your own with changing the chicken for fish or tofu. Add your favourite veggies like chopped carrots, pak choi or mushrooms. Yum!
