Asian Chicken Noodle Soup
I don’t know about you but I love a good, warm, spicy soup this time of year!
When the weather gets cold nothing warms me up better than a big bowl of soup. I especially love Asian inspired soups.
Today’s Asian Chicken Noodle Soup is one I make a lot. It packs in protein with the chicken and then fresh vegetables, herbs and rice noodles.
Oh, and don’t forget the spice from the sriracha!
WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THIS CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP?
BROTH: I used a chicken broth in this soup but you can also use a vegetable broth if you would like.
SHREDDED CHICKEN: Shredded or diced chicken works nicely in this soup.
You can also save time by buying a rotisserie chicken and shredding that up to add to the soup.
VEGETABLES: Fresh vegetables are always nice in soup. This soup uses carrots, green onions and snap peas.
Other vegetables that work nicely include zucchini, celery and mushrooms.
FRESH HERBS: Fresh herbs take soups to the next level. I suggest cilantro or Thai basil.
NOODLES: I used rice noodles in this soup but feel free to use your favorite. For a lighter version use zucchini noodles.
SPICE: I like my soups nice and spicy. Add as little or as much sriracha as you like!
WHAT MODIFICATIONS CAN I MAKE TO THIS SOUP?
Instead of chicken try using shrimp, ground chicken or ground pork instead.
Load up on fresh vegetables in your soup. Some I like include zucchini, celery, eggplant, mushrooms and bell pepper.
In place of the noodles you can use brown or white rice. You also can use zucchini noodles to lighten up the dish even more!
