When in doubt or when I have bonny bits of chicken left, I resort to making different versions of chicken soup recipes.
This dish is based on Tibetan Chicken Noodle soup recipe called ‘Thukpa’.
Thukpa is also popular in Nepal and Burma since its a warm comforting soup perfect for cold mountainous regions.
I always recommend making chicken noodle soup from scratch. This is because the canned or packed versions are high in sodium and fat besides the additives.
Homemade soup not only tastes better but is also easy to make and wholesome for the entire family. From a baby to an adult everyone enjoys a hot bowl of Homemade Chicken Soup!
Loading it up with fresh vegetables such as carrots, beans, mushrooms , bakchoi and noodles makes is a wholesome awesome one pot meal for the entire family.
On days when I am not too keen on stirring or chopping, I know a steaming pot of homemade soup will save the day!
I am a firm believer that chicken soup is not only good for your soul but also for your body.
Its a given, that when anyone in our house comes down with cold (which is almost every other week, as we are toddler infested ;-)) I resort to making Hot Indian Masala Chai for mornings and soothing chicken soup, mostly an Easy Chicken Noodle Soup for evening meals served with garlic bread.
