Chicken noodle soup

nudelsoppa med cashewnötter

I improvised a quick soup for dinner, that turned out to be delicious. The whole family loved it!

Chicken noodle soup
1 onion
2 chicken breasts
1 garlic clove
1 liter water 
1 veg stock cube 
200 ml cream
1/2 red bell pepper, in thin strips
100 g sugar snap peas, sliced
1 tbsp ketjap manis
Fresh ginger, thumb-sized piece
100 g dried egg noodles, thin 
Fresh coriander
Toasted cashews

Serves two adults, two kids

Finely chop the onion and cut the chicken into smaller pieces. Mince the garlic. Cook the chicken in a little butter, until slightly browned. Add onions and garlic and fry for a few more minutes. Add the water, a vegetable stock cube, and the cream. Cook on medium-low heat for about ten minutes. Add the bell pepper, sugar snap peas, ketjap manis and ginger. Cook for about five minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to packet instructions. Drain. Divide between bowls, and pour the soup on top. Top with coriander and cashews.

This looks delicious Anne! I love when you experiment and something amazing comes out of it! :) I was just wondering what ketjap manis is and what it tastes like?

Kind regards,

Hi Jules! It's sort of a sweet soy sauce, I think it's Indonesian. said...

It seems like a Thai style dish. Add some lime juice or lemon juice, some coconut milk, it will be really good. I like that you added the coriander and cashews, it should be really good. :)
