Wonderfully easy chicken noodle soup

By guest writer Susanne Koch

I have a cold, and when I do there's only one thing I want: Soup. So today I treated myself to a tasty, nourishing chicken noodle soup which I cooked up in all of 15 minutes. This is what you need:

The thigh of a grilled chicken
2-3 cups of stock (water and a stock cube will do)
1 large red chilli (seeds removed)
1 portion of noodles
1 inch of root ginger
1 large clove of garlic
2 spring onions
A squeeze of lemon
Serves 1 person

Heat the stock, add the chilli, ginger and garlic and simmer. Add the rest of the ingredients as you go: Chop the spring onion, tear the chicken from the bone and chop it in bite sized peaces. Last, add the noodles. I chose some broad rice noodles that cook in just 2 minutes. Squeeze over the lemon and you're done. If you happen to have some cilantro, it will be a perfect match.
