My Easy Peasy Chinese Inspired Chicken Noodle Soup

After spending the weekend over indulging and celebrating Robbie Burns i was craving something light to eat after eating haggis, neeps and tatties (minus the Haggis) along with my body weight in puddings (desert). 

My easy peasy chinese inspired chicken noodle soup seemed to hit the nail in the head!! 
Perfect if your feeling ill or have a hangover as it will wake you up thats for sure. It is very quick and simple to make it only took me not enough 20 minutes for start to finish. 
I always seem to cook more than i need because in our house your never sure who will arrive last minute, and its also a trait i've inherited from my mamma. 

This would serve around about 4 people but its so easy to multiply it to feed more or less. I apologise in advance for my measurements i never noted it down i just tend to throw everything in.


  • 1 packet of Udon Noodles (instructions on packet
  • 2 Pak Choi sliced into quarters 
  • 2 small Chicken Breasts
  • Soy Sauce
  • 1 large tablespoon of Dark Brown Sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon of Chinese Five Spice
  • Half a packet of Mushrooms finely sliced (i used chestnut) or Shiitake Mushrooms
  • 1 small Red Chilli finely chopped 
  • Half a packet of Sugar Snap Peas sliced lengthways 
  • 1 teaspoon of freshly grated Ginger
  • 1 Pint of Chicken Stock 
You can make this veggie by substituting the chicken and stock with bean sprouts and veggie stock. 


Place a pan of salted water onto boil, once the pan is boiling swirl in the udon noodles. Once the noodles are cooked drain and place to one side. 

Heat up a wok with some oil and throw in your sliced chicken. When the chicken begins to seal throw in the dark brown sugar, few dashes of soy sauce and the chinese five spice. Once the chicken is cooked pour the stock, ginger and chilli into the pan, bring the stock to a gentle simmer then add in the veggies. 

Meanwhile divide the Udon noodles into bowls of your choice. Once the veggies still have a wee bit of a bite to them, ladle the broth into the bowls. Now its time to serve, you made need to add more soy sauce to taste. 

I hope you enjoy!!
