Recipe: Ultimate Chicken Noodle Soup

When you need warming up or a little home comfort there's nothing better than a big bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup...I'm pretty certain it should have 'food of the gods' classification. There's no exact science to this recipe, the beauty of it being you just chuck everything in a pan and let it simmer. Serve with warm bread or crispy vegetable spring rolls.

4 spring onions
3 chicken stock cubes
2 carrots
2 tbsp soya sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1 chicken breast
1 small red pepper
1 small can sweetcorn
Rice noodles
Salt & pepper

RECIPE: (makes two large bowls)

1. In a large pan place the stock cubes, soya sauce, sesame oil, a little salt and plenty of pepper. Fill 3/4 full with boiling water and simmer on a low-medium heat

2. Top and tail the carrots, cut in to quarters length ways then chop in to chunks and add to the pot

3. De-seed the pepper and chop in to small chunks and add to the pot as well

4. Slice the chicken breast in to strips and cut into mouth size pieces and add to the stock

5. Add the drained can of sweetcorn

6. Allow to simmer for 20 minutes

7.Slice the spring onions (include as much of the green stalk as possible) and break up two big handfuls of noodles (you can use wide or thin rice noodles), add to the pot, stir and leave for about 5 minutes until the noodles are cooked (less time if using thin noodles)

8. Before serving taste the stock to check for seasoning and then enjoy!
