I’ve recently been seeing chicken soup everywhere, here’s my version

Ingredients: for 1 litre of soup (serves 3ish)

1 litre of chicken stock

1 chicken breast (about 175g) or left over bits from roast chicken

1 tsp of freshly chopped root ginger (or 1tbsp powered ginger)

1 glove garlic, crushed

1 small onion, chopped

2 tbsp sweet corn

2 tsp soy sauce

2 large mushrooms sliced

1/2 red pepper, sliced

40g noodles or tiny pasta pieces

How to: Put the stock in a pan with the garlic, ginger, onion and the whole chicken breast. Simmer for about 10 mins until the chicken is tender. Remove the chicken from the pan and shred using 2 forks. Meanwhile add the corn, soy sauce, mushrooms, pepper and noodles and continue to simmer for a few minutes until the veg is soft enough for your liking. Return the chicken to the pan, stir everything together and then serve with crusty bread!
