Poached Chicken Asian Soup

poached asian chicken noodle soup
I love having poached chicken in the fridge that I can throw onto a soup, pop into a sandwich or toss through a salad. Add noodles to this soup for something more hearty or keep it light for a quick midweek dinner.
  • 2 poached chicken breasts (I used simple this recipe)
  • 8 cups chicken broth/stock (or 8 cups of water and 2 chicken stock cubes)
  • 2 tbsp tamari (or all purpose soy)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 garlic cloves whole
  • 200g mushrooms of choice sliced
  • 1 bunch buk choy halved
  • 200g egg noodles
  • Fried shallot to serve (I use these)
  • Chilli oil or sauce to serve (optional)
  • Black and white sesame seeds to serve (optional)
  • In a large pot add chicken broth/stock (or water and stock cubes if using), tamari (or all purpose soy) and 2 whole garlic cloves. Bring to the boil on high heat.
  • Add mushrooms, simmer on medium heat for 5 minutes.
  • In final 2 mins of cooking, add egg noodles and bok choy.
  • Serve in individual bowls topped with poached chicken, sesame oil, fried shallots, chilli sauce/oil and sesame seeds if using.
