Asian Chicken Noodle Soup – A flavorful and delicious twist on the classic Chicken Noodle Soup featuring ginger, teriyaki sauce, egg noodles, and colorful vegetables, and it’s ready in about 30 minutes!
All I can think to say is, slurp slurp slurrrrrrp! I LOVE this soup!!
Hi YA! Happy Happy DAY! Did you know? It’s official… today is the FIRST DAY OF FALL! Boom! Pumpkins, and lattes, and soups may now reign over the world! And if you decide to wear tall boots on this 86-degree weather day, it’s all good. You are allowed to do so because it’s officially Fall.
Oooookay, we need to discuss. I’ve got a pile here of egg noodles swirled together with chicken and veggies that I’d like to talk to you about, today. I only ask that you do a raise-the-roof gesture with me because this chicken noodle soup is all-that + a tall shot of sake (sah-keh) to go with it. 🙌
This soup happened to me because I honestly could not get the awesome smells, eggy noodles, and crunchy veggie-wonderfulness out of my head after an amazing dinner at one of my favorite noodles-everything restaurants. 🍜 And ever since, I just want a noodle-party up in this house all around the clock.
I absolutely love fancy pants recipes, but real life food is where it’s at, and in real life, we take one pot + chicken + noodles + veggies and make amazing things like this.
All I am going to ask you to do here is heat some oil, throw in onions, garlic and ginger, fill it up with broth, water, and chicken, and let it go. A little while later, you will drop in the veggies and noodles, and soon enough you will feel super proud for making your own chicken noodle soup from scratch. Sprinkled with Asian flair.
