Chicken Vegetables Noodle Soup….perfect to bring cheers to everyone in this cold weather. My family would never say ‘no’ to it. It has been quite a while since we last had chicken noodle soup. When I read Anncoo’s Meat Balls Soup With Udon posted on the second day of the new year, I immediately jumped at it. We must have noodles in soup for dinner. It was so cold and I knew everyone would be so happy.

I didn’t have meatballs but the 4 chicken legs in the fridge would do. We had a very satisfying dinner of Boiled Chicken and Vegetable Noodle Soup. It was simple, easy and quick, yet very delicious. Here’s my recipe to share:

Ingredients A
4 chicken legs (cut each into half)
3 small carrots
4 stalks celery
a few slices of ginger

Chicken vegetable soup

Put everything in Ingredients A into a fairly big pot. Add water and let it boil for about 30 minutes under medium fire.

Ingredients B (seasoning)
1 and 1/2 piece chicken stock cubes
pepper powder (optional)
1T fried shallot oil

Add the seasoning in Ingredients B to the soup above. Let it continue to boil under low fire while you cook the noodles below. Adjust according to taste.

Ingredients C
dry white noodles

In a clean pot, put some water to boil. When it comes to a boil, add the dry noodles. Let it boil for a few minutes. Use a pair of chopsticks or a fork to stir and loosen the noodles so that they do not clump together. Taste for doneness.

Dish up the noodles into bowls and pour over the soup. Add some of the vegetables and a piece of chicken. and enjoy a hot meal of chicken and vegetables noodle soup.

This type of noodles is very delicious. We call it ‘mee suah’ back home. I remember this noodle is compulsory for us to eat during Chinese New Year or on our birthdays. There will also be 2 boiled eggs to top it. My mum said it is symbolic of longevity, peace and prosperity. Back home, this noodles were very long and soft and not cut so neatly like this dried type.

Looks like a most delicious pot of soup and utterly delicious! So comforting on a cold day!

@Trissa - I need to, too. Too much eating in December and little exercise :( This dish is very light and yet filling.

@Angie - Yes, it is. The best is that it takes little effort to cook and not oily and greasy all over.

@Donna - Yes, it is. I feel like having this soup everyday cos it’s so cold. I can just cook a big pot and everyone can just help themselves whenever they want to :)

this sounds so good - nothing better on a cold day than a bowl of hot chicken soup … yours looks wonderful…

Mary  on January 5th, 2010

@Rebecca - I think the blogging world is really fun. We can always inspire each other to cook and enjoy our cooking and eating more. Anncoo’s blog is awesome. I still want to cook her prawn and vermicelli dish. Looks very delicious, and all other desserts.

@Drick - Thank you very much. I’m very tempted to cook another big pot :P It’s still very cold here.

I absolutely love noodles. My mom loves this type of noodles and sometime I simply add them to chicken stock. My nephew loves this too but of course with chicken and vegetables, they’re even better.

Shirley  on January 5th, 2010

A warm soup like that would be the best in weather like yours! Are you still snowed in?

Elin  on January 5th, 2010

A nutritious chicken soup! I love the mee suah with it. Real comfort food. Simple and yet delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe Mary.

Mary  on January 5th, 2010

@Divina - It’s not only delicious but easy to eat too, I think. All the vegetables are quite soft except for the chicken. My parents love this noodles too.

@Shirley - Yes, that’s right…need lots of hot soup to keep warm. Still lots of snowing here. Had not been snowing so bad for the past several years that we were here. I think climate change is real.

@Elin - Yes, the best of it is it’s simplicity, yet delicious. My children will know how to cook this now :P

I need to get the knack of noodles, mine go all claggy and stick together. This looks very tasty.

Mary  on January 5th, 2010

@Sarah - The trick to cooking nice noodles that don’t clump together is to boil it in a lot of water. It will be gluey and sticky if you boil it in a small amount of water. Then the stirring is important. Try again.

Such a yummy chicken noodle soup, would be perfect on this cold day!

pigpigscorner  on January 5th, 2010

I think I have to eat this everyday to lose all the weight I put on! Looks really good!

Mary  on January 5th, 2010

@Natasha - Thank you. It’s just what I need…..brrr…so cold here!

@pigpigscorner - It’s so tempting to eat more noodles so don’t overeat if you want to lose weight. Well, I over ate I think :( Just too good to resist.
