Asian Chicken Noodle Soup


Ingredients


4 ounces dry Chinese noodles

1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth

6 shiitake mushrooms - sliced

2 green onions - chopped

1 skinless, boneless chicken breast half

2 eggs (or just egg whites)

Optional - extra green onions, soy sauce,
splash of hot sauce or tabasco, juice from lemon or lime,
or add bean sprouts after cooked (vietnamese style)


Directions


Bring a large pot of water to a boil,stir noodles into boiling water and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. (For a chewier texture, shock the noodles by pouring 1 cup cold water into the pot when it starts to foam, then letting it come to a boil again to finish cooking.)

Drain and divide into two serving bowls.

Meanwhile, bring chicken broth to boil in a medium saucepan with mushrooms and green onions.

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and stir into boiling broth.

When broth returns to a boil, crack eggs into broth.

Continue to cook until chicken is no longer pink and eggs are cooked, about 10 minutes.

Pour the chicken soup over the noodles in the bowls,add extra ingredients if using, and serve immediately.
