Spicy Chicken Soup for the Soul

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 16 minutes   Rated:

Son was sick, raining cats and dogs, nothing planned for dinner, still recovering myself from being unwell, check the fridge.

Chicken, yes.

Coriander, yes.

Chillies, yes.

Spinach, yes.

Mushrooms, yes.

Noodles, yes.

OK...have lemongrass and lime leaves growing aplenty...this is the result. I am pretty sure you will love it as much as we did...and I dare say, we all felt a little bit better on a cold wet night once this was in us!

You’re welcome.
