Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS:
  • Chicken options:
    • a) buy a cooked BBQ chicken from the supermarket and shred it (this is my favourite option for a quick and easy dinner), or
    • b) poach and shred 2 chicken breasts.
  • Noodle variations:
    • you can substitute the Chicken Noodle Soup Mix with chicken flavoured 2 Minute Noodles if you wish.
    • if you want to omit the noodles altogether, then exchange the water for chicken stock for flavouring.
    • you can use spaghetti noodles (broken up) if you like, but also exchange the water for chicken stock, for flavouring. 
  • Storing - this soup can be stored in the fridge, reheated and consumed within 2 days.
  • Reheating - as this soup contained cooked chicken, it is important to reheat this soup well.
    • to reheat from the fridge, ensure the soup comes to a gentle simmer for a few minutes before serving.
    • to reheat from frozen, allow the soup to defrost in the fridge, and then similarly, reheat to a gentle simmer for a few minutes before serving. Do not re-freeze.
  • Freezing - this soup can be frozen in airtight containers for up to 3 months. Reheat well before consuming. However, if you have used pre-cooked chicken that has been cooled before using, then this soup is not suitable for freezing.
