Chicken Noodle Soup


Carole's Chatter: Chicken Noodle Soup


It's winter here so soup is the order of the day – but actually I like a good soup almost all year round.

Ingredients:

Fresh noodles
Leftover roast chicken (skin removed) & potatoes
Onion (I only use a little bit but most people would use at least ½ an onion)
Ginger
Bacon pieces
Oil (tsp)
Chilli
Stock cube – chicken or vegetable
¼ cabbage, shredded
Handful of brussel sprouts (sliced)
Salt (or Fish sauce) /pepper/cayenne pepper
Soy sauce
Lemon juice
Crispy onions for garnish along with some leaves of Brussel sprouts


Method:

Gently fry off the onions, chopped ginger, bacon fat and a touch of chopped chilli in a teensy amount of oil.

Once it is all sweated down, add water (which if you are in a hurry you could boil first in a kettle) and your stock cube.

Add the leftovers all sliced to bite sized plus the shreeded cabbage and the sliced Brussel sprouts.

Bring to just under a boil and then add your fresh noodles.  They only need about 5 minutes to cook.

Season to taste with salt or fish sauce, pepper and cayenne pepper.  Taste again and if the broth still needs more depth add a splosh of soy sauce and a squirt of lemon juice to brighten.

Garnish with a sprinkling of store bought crispy onions and a few leaves from the Brussel sprouts.
