Eat4Cheap: 10 minute chicken noodle soup

This is such a versatile dish - it's ideal for using up leftover veg and you can use any type of meat. An almost instant meal in a bowl!

Serves: 4 adults

Preparation time: 3 mins

Cooking time: 7 mins


125g medium or fine dried egg noodles

1.2 litres reduced salt vegetable or chicken stock

300g frozen or fresh stir-fry vegetables

250g skinless, boneless roast chicken breasts sliced

1 pinch ground black pepper

1 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce

What to do:

1. Put the noodles into a heatproof bowl and cover them with boiling water. Leave to soak for 6 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, pour the stock into a large saucepan and bring up to the boil. Add the vegetables and

simmer for 5 minutes.

3. Drain the noodles, then add them to the saucepan with the sliced chicken. Season with pepper. Heat for

1-2 minutes, then ladle into bowls.

4. Serve each portion sprinkled with a few drops of soy sauce.

Tip 2: If you like things spicy, add a few fine slices of fresh red or green chilli, or a pinch of dried chilli flakes.
