What's for Dinner, a Friday Addition~

Hubby and I made a pot of yummy Spicy Asian Chicken and Noodle soup last night for dinner, and after posting pics on IG, several wanted me to share the recipe.  This has become a favorite, especially when fighting a cold and stuffy nose, that I was surprised I had not already shared it with you all.

Spicy Asian Chicken and Noodle Soup
from Cooking Light Ultimate Chicken Cookbook magazine


3 C fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 C water
1 1/2 C shredded rotisserie chicken breast
1/2 C grated carrot (about 1 medium)
1/2 C thinly sliced snow peas (we omitted as hubby does not care for them)
2 tsp Sriracha (hot chili sauce, such as Huy Fong)
2 tsp lower-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp Thai red curry paste
1 (2-inch) piece peeled fresh ginger
6 C water
3 oz uncooked wide rice sticks (rice flour noodles) *we prefer the narrow
1 Tbs fresh lime juice
1/4 C fresh mint
1/4 C fresh cilantro
1/4 C thinly sliced green onions


1. Combine the first 9 ingredients in a medium saucepan.  Bring to a simmer, keep warm
2.  Bring 6 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add rice noodles; cook 3 minutes. Drain. place about 1/4 cup rice noodles in each of 4 bowls.
3. Discard ginger. Add lime juice to broth mixture; stir. Ladle 1 1/3 cups broth mixture over each serving; top with 1 tablespoon each mint, cilantro, and green onions.

*Hubby likes to cook the soup mixture with the herbs and green onions in it, as he finds the flavor is better.

Hope you are staying warm!!

Oh, my goodness. That sounds perfect for this weather and my stuffy nose. I love Sriracha - makes a whole lot of things more interesting!

Yum And good for those sinuses! I have or can find the ingredients except for the curry paste. Any idea where I can locate it?
