I call it a Chinese/Thai style chickennoodlesoup thing, because that's what it is, really. This is a great recipe because it has chicken, vegetables, and instant noodles, which, if you're poor like me, are a life saver
the rich, creamy and fruity food I cooked and ate over the festive period was delicious, but I am wanting cleaner flavours now, and this recipe, Chinese Garlic,Ginger & Honey Chicken with Noodles, is perfect, as well as being super low in calories too
Beginning with his wife’s homemade recipe he gave this concoction to volunteers then later on their blood samples was tested and found out that dishes similar to this has anti-inflammatory properties that could lead to the ease from symptoms of illness
I prefer to use the bones leftover from a roastchicken myself. Whenever we have the bones left from a roastedchicken I put them into a container in the freezer (if I am not going to use them right away)
Remove the chicken to a plate to cool. Add the noodles and simmer until cooked. To freeze, allow the soup to cool completely before freezing (see tip), and when you’re ready to eat, allow the soup to defrost before bringing it back to a gentle simmer in a pan
