Other reasons I love this Easy Chicken Corn Noodle Soup Recipe
Everyone slurping it up is a pretty big reason, but there are a couple of other reasons why I love this soup.
It is quick to make
It only takes 20 minutes from start to finish, and most of that is it just bubbling on the stove
One pot Wonder
There is only one pot to clean after making this soup, I hate doing dishes so this is a major win for me.
Notes on making my easy Asian-style chicken noodle soup
Stock can be pretty high in salt. I quite often make my own, from scratch using the leftovers when we have a roast chicken.
But if this sounds way too complicated to you, then just check you are buying buy a low salt/sodium stock
Noodles you can use whatever you want, My kids and I have been loving it with Pad Thai style rice noodles, ie the thicker ribbon type rice noodles
Feel free to add other veggies, aside from the corn frozen peas go well in this too. Grated carrot always works well, as does thinly sliced mushrooms.
If you have a green disliking kid, try peeling the zucchini, so sneaky but awesome, as it ends up looking like extra noodles! I love frozen veggies and if you don’t have fresh corn on hand, frozen will work just as well!
