What do you make when you are sick or trying to get over a lingering cold?

In my house I always make some sort of chicken noodle soup.  I find it so comforting when I don’t feel well and I know that the chicken broth can help to boost your immune system.

We recently had the flu go around my house.  Ever since we had my son two years ago we have the stomach flu once a year.  It usually starts with him (probably from daycare) and then my husband and I are next in line. It is no fun! This year was especially bad because I go it when I was 37 weeks pregnant! I had absolutely no energy to get off of the couch and just had to lay there and hope it was short lived! Once I was feeling mostly back to normal I decided I needed a good immunity boosting and comforting soup for my family.

I wanted to try something different than the same chicken noodle soup we always make. Don’t get me wrong you can’t beat a classic bowl of chicken noodle soup but sometimes you need to mix things up!

Sesame Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup

Sesame Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup is an Asian inspired twist on your traditional chicken noodle soup with immunity boosting ingredients like ginger and chicken broth. The combination of fresh ginger paired with the sesame oil is rich and comforting.  I made a double batch of this recipe and froze half of it for when the baby comes. I figured it would be a great thing to have on hand when I need a quick dinner to put on the table.

  2. Stir in the carrots and zucchini and continue to cook for 3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the chicken broth. Bring the soup to a boil and stir in the chicken, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Simmer the soup for 15 minutes.

Notes

You can use rotisserie chicken as a quick and easy option.
I shredded the vegetables (carrots and zucchini) but you could chop them if you prefer. I liked the texture of the shredded vegetables.
You could substitute Asian noodles for the egg noodles if you want.

Nice adding of sesame and ginger to this model! Every country has different cooking style. In Asia, China has totally different cooking style from other Asian countries and I think it is typical

Oh man, the thought of having the stomach flu at 37 weeks sounds so brutal - you poor mama. This is definitely the kind of food you want when you recover!
