This Asian Style Chicken-Vegetable and Noodle Soup is a twist on a classic chicken noodle soup and perfect for a cold winter’s day.
My husband loves homemade chicken noodle soup and asks me to make it every time the weather turns cooler. I created this soup with several of his favorite ingredients, including cabbage, baby spinach, frozen Asian Style vegetables, noodles and a hit of sweet chili sauce.
Heat olive oil in a dutch oven. Sautee the onions, celery, peppers. I like to use red peppers for added color but only had green today.
Add cabbage and garlic. Sautee.
Pour in chicken broth.
Stir in cooked chicken, salt and pepper. Simmer.
Add frozen Asian Style vegetables and noodles. I tried a package of Oriental Flavor Ramen noodles, but did not use the flavor packet that comes with it. You could use chicken flavored Ramen noodles or just thin egg noodles.
Add the spinach, soy sauce, and chili sauce.
The flavors blend so well if this is made a few hours before serving. I allow it to cool and then warm it up prior to serving.
