Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup

Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup

Tried this out on the Husband for dinner last night. He isn’t usually a fan of ginger, but oh well. There is really quite a bit of ginger in it though,  it had a pretty strong taste. But it was still good! I put some hot sauce in mine to spicy it up a little, but it was good on it’s own too. I usually make my chicken noodle soup with a lot more veggies, so I would probably double the vegetables next time.

The Recipe:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 large chicken breasts
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 13 cups water
  • 2 cups white wine
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (4 inch) piece fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 7 whole black peppercorns
  • 4 cubes chicken bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 3/4 cup peeled and sliced carrots
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh rosemary(I used about 1 tbsp of dried rosemary)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme(I used about 3/4 tbsp dried thyme)
  • 1 (8 ounce) package egg noodles
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

    Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add chicken, onion, and crushed garlic cloves; cook in hot oil until chicken breast is browned and onions start to turn translucent, about 5 minutes . Pour water, white wine, and lemon juice over the chicken mixture; stir sliced ginger, peppercorns, chicken bouillon, and white sugar into the liquid. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 45 minutes. Remove and discard the crushed garlic cloves. Remove chicken breasts from the soup to a cutting board; chop into bite-size pieces. Add carrot, celery, rosemary, and thyme to the soup. Reduce heat to low until the vegetables begin to soften, about 20 minutes. Bring the soup to a boil. Return chopped chicken to the soup along with the egg noodles, minced garlic, and grated ginger; remove the pot from heat and let sit until the noodles have softened, about 10 minutes. Season with salt.
