Super Healthy Chicken Noodle Soup

Well happy new year everyone! Have you all recovered? My mum hasn't been very well (actual sickness, not an extended hangover I promise) so I made a batch of chicken noodle soup which is perfect for when you're feeling a bit under the weather. It has hits of ginger and chilli so isn't as bland as your everyday chicken soup and will perk you up in no time. Plus is has the added bonus of containing less that 250 calories per portion.

What you'll need:

  • 2 pints of chicken stock
  • 2 chicken legs
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 chilli
  • 1-2 nests of dried egg noodles
  • 2 tbsp sweetcorn
  • 2 mushrooms
  • 2 spring onions
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
(Serves 2) 

Pour the stock into a pan and add the chicken. Finely chop the ginger and garlic and add that too. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes until the chicken is cooked. While this is cooking slice the rest of your ingredients (they'll look like sunshine on a plate).

When the chicken is tender, transfer to a chopping board and shred using two forks. Return it to the pan, add the noodles, sweetcorn, mushrooms, soy and half the spring onions. Simmer for 3-5 minutes until the noodles are cooked. If you think that it needs a bit more water just add some from the kettle. 

Ladle into bowls and sprinkle over the chilli's and remaining spring onions.
