ASIAN STYLE CHICKEN-VEGETABLE AND NOODLE SOUP

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. A twist on classic chicken noodle soup with the addition of cabbage, baby spinach and frozen asian style vegetables.

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.

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.

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.
