Fresh ginger root gives extra zest to this otherwise standard chicken noodle recipe. This soup can be prepared in less than a half hour, and is great comfort food, especially during cold season.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 2 cups water
- 3 carrots, chopped
- 3 stalks celery, chopped
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- 3 slices fresh ginger root
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup chopped cooked chicken breast meat
- 1/2 cup egg noodles
In a large pot over medium heat combine the broth, water, carrots, celery and ground black pepper and allow to cook. In a medium skillet over medium high heat, combine the ginger, oil and chicken. Saute for about 5 minutes and remove the sliced ginger.
Add the chicken to the broth mixture, bring to a boil and then add the egg noodles. Continue to cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes until noodles and vegetables are tender.
