Chicken Noodle Soup

Who doesn’t love chicken noodle soup! It’s a classic—healing almost. Chicken noodle soup is everyone’s go-to soup when feeling under the weather. That classic broth flavor is burned into everyone’s mind. So why mess with it? Well, we didn’t really “mess” with it, just added some brightness with fresh herbs including thyme, rosemary, and parsley. To deepen the broth we add fish sauce—you read that right—fish sauce. It’s a secret ingredient that can take any dish over the top. Don’t worry, in small amounts, it doesn’t make things taste fishy. The potent saltiness has a magical effect on flavor.

Feel free to replace the egg noodles with rice if you desire. One cup of cooked rice should do. You may also opt for low-sodium chicken broth is you prefer to control the salt content more. We shred our chicken breasts for a more rustic texture but if you prefer cubed, go for it. That’s what’s great about soup, it’s versatile. Enjoy!
