Chicken sweetcorn noodle soup

Being huge fans of Pho here's a really simple recipe that anyone can do...yes even you lot that struggle to boil pasta! Not only is this soup super tasty it is low in fat. We used red onion but would sub for spring onion next time.

  • 900ml chicken or vegetable stock (we used knorr stock pots)
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, about 175g/6oz
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh root ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 50g rice or wheat noodles
  • 4 tbsp sweetcorn, canned or frozen
  • 2 spring onions, shredded
  • 2 tsp soy sauce, plus extra for serving
    1. Pour the stock into a pan and add the chicken, ginger and garlic.

    2. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat, partly cover and simmer for 20 mins, until the chicken is tender. Remove the chicken to a board and shred into bite-size pieces using a couple of forks.
    3. Return the chicken to the stock with the noodles, corn, half the spring onions and the soy sauce. Simmer for 3-4 mins until the noodles are tender. Ladle into two bowls and scatter over the remaining spring onions, herbs and chilli shreds if using. Serve with extra soy sauce for sprinkling.
    Have a go...who knew chicken would taste so nice boiled!!
