10- Chicken Noodle Laksa Soup 

This is one of my favorite healthy noodle recipes.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 whole chicken
  • 300g of rice noodles
  • 200ml of coconut milk
  • the zest and juice of one whole lime
  • 1 lemongrass stalk
  • 2 tablespoons of fish sauce

  • 4cm of ginger chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of coriander seed
  • 2 red chillies chopped
  • 150g of spring onion chopped
  • handful of mint leaves (optional)
  • pinch of salt

Method

1- Place the chicken in a large saucepan with the coriander seeds, ginger, lime zest, lemongrass and a pinch of salt. Add cold water to cover and slowly bring to the boil. Once boiled, reduce to a simmer. This will poach the chicken. Gently poach the chicken for 40 minutes or until it starts to fall away from the bone.
2- Carefully take the chicken out of the saucepan and place on to a plate and cover with foil. Leave the stock to stand. Pull the chicken from the bones and tear in to chunks.
3- Bring the stock back to the boil, add the fish sauce, soy sauce, coconut milk, chillies and garlic. Simmer.
4- Add the chicken chunks to the pan and cook for 5 minutes or until warmed through completely. Add the spring onions and lime juice to taste.
5- Divide the noodles between 6 bowls, divide and scoop the chicken and veg in to each of the bowls. Place on top of the noodles and garnish with coriander and mint leaves.
