In a medium soup pan, saute garlic and ginger lightly in sesame oil for about 1 minute. Add shredded carrots to the pan and saute for about 2 minutes. Lighty salt & pepper as it cooks.
Add everything else to the pan except for 1 cup of the chicken broth and the noodles. Bring to a light simmer and cook for 12 minutes.
Remove chicken from the pan to a cutting board. When chicken has cooled enough to handle, shred chicken using two forks or cut into small pieces.
Add the chicken back to the pan along with the noodles and continue cooking or about 5 minutes or until the noodles are tender.
Add the additional cup of chicken broth as needed.
Ginger Chicken Noodle Soup Tips:
- Because noodles slowly absorb liquid, always have additional chicken broth on hand.
- For a little stronger chicken flavor, add a little bit of powdered soup base.
- Watch sodium levels – don’t add any extra salt if you are watching sodium levels. Purchase low-sodium chicken broth as well.
- Mushrooms are very healthy and can be eaten diced in salads, eggs and soups. Always have fresh mushrooms on hand.
- If you are trying to clear a head cold, add a little additional garlic and ginger.
