Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Chicken - I recommend using a store-bought BBQ chicken or precooked shredded chicken for this recipe. If you prefer, you can poach and shred two small chicken breasts.
Serving suggestions – serve this soup drizzled with extra soy sauce, chopped spring onions and a side of crusty bread.
Storing – this soup can be stored in the fridge and reheated and consumed within 2 days.
Freezing – if using pre-cooked chicken that has cooled before using in the soup then this soup is not suitable for freezing. However, if you poach and shred your own chicken and use it immediately (while still hot) then it can be frozen.
Noodles – if you’d like to make your soup even heartier, add a packet of 2 minute instant noodles (discard the flavour sachet) in the final 2 minutes of simmering.
