Chinese Chicken and Noodle Soup

Updated: Jun 18, 2021

Today, we decided to have Chinese food for dinner, but the kids wanted to try something new. ‘A new soup Mama!’ So I decided to whip up a quick and easy chicken noodle soup. This soup came together so easily and still gave me time to focus on prepping the rest of dinner. The soup takes about half an hour if you already have chicken stock on hand, which I usually do.

The Recipe makes enough for 4 as a starter, or 2 for a main meal. And usually serves 4-6 kids. My kids end up eating this the next day for lunch, or even a snack. Serve it with prawn crackers.

Preparation time 10 minutes

Cook time 20 minutes- if you have already have chicken stock on hand
