Noodle Soups

Nothing better than noodle soups. Noodle soups in lots of rich healthy broth. And, noodles that you can slurp, then tip up the bowl and sip the broth! My Asian chicken noodle soup has a kick to it, so if you want to reduce the amount of chili sauce then add more according to your taste buds, do that! 

And, if you don’t want any protein in it, like chicken or beef, then this fresh herb Asian noodle soup is for you!

Asian Soup

If you’ve ever had an authentic Asian soup, then you know that there’s a difference in these soups. It’s not hugely expressive. It’s just the subtle aspects of the spices and ingredients that create this amazing flavor. 

My girlfriend, Candice from Singapore, visited me recently and made this Asian soup in my kitchen. I can tell you as she made it, she darted back and forth doing other things as the stages of the soup were cooking. She made it look effortless! You have to make this Soto Ayam with Sambal Sauce! It’s exquisitely divine. And, I watched the entire process. It wasn’t difficult! Hey, I’ve even made a video for you to watch. 

Soups of China

In 2018, Ben and I spent a month in China. It was one of our most epic trips. From scaling the Great Wall of China to visiting temples, gardens and eating our way down the side streets, believe me I tasted a lot of soups of China. So, this creation is just one of my renditions of a soup. And, we had soup for every meal including breakfast! 

Unique Chicken Soup Recipes

Asian chicken noodle soup, or most any other type of cuisine recipes, shouldn’t be intimidating to make! And, designing unique chicken soup recipes makes it more interesting to keep eating chicken soup. 

With just some simple fresh ingredients, you’ll be sipping and slurping your way from one bowl and maybe two of this Asian noodle soup!

Every recipe I create has some sort of story, behind-the-scenes like, that inspired the creation of the recipe. Here goes for this one.

Asian Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Here’s the backstory on this particular Asian chicken noodle soup recipe. Our daughter, Lynn, well, my stepdaughter and Ben’s wonderful daughter had surgical procedure and needed some help. So, the two of us, of course, were delighted to be there for her and her husband during the first week post-surgery.

Since Lynn couldn’t cook, I had her entire kitchen to myself. So, as would be expected, I went to work creating for her soups and meals that were full of natural ingredients, lots of healthy vegetables.

As you well know, eating well is essential to every day life, but eating healthy is absolutely mandatory to the healing process regardless of the degree of the injury, ailment or what’s got you under the weather!

Chicken Soup Spices

Chicken soup spices make the soup. The spices in this soup are on the elementary level of cooking skills needed. These are the kinds of recipes I love creating. I don’t want you to have to do lots of fancy complicated things nor do I want you to have to have a kitchen that’s equipped with virtually everything (like mine!).

That’s what’s so much fun for me about cooking in someone else’s kitchen. I don’t have maybe all the items I’d grab if I were in my kitchen. I might have to improvise. I might not have a full-stocked pantry or freezer. And, I might not have a grocery store or stores where I can find an array of ingredients.

Asian Soups with Noodles

This noodle soup recipe gives you your Asian flair with just a few basic ingredients. Asian soups with noodles can incorporate different types of noodles, rice, ramen, egg and more. 

One ingredient that will make all the difference will be the quality of the chicken stock that you use. I’d plan on splurging on the chicken stock because it’s the one thing that pulls everything else together. Now, pull together what you need from the ingredients and make it. I promise you’ll be slurping and sipping!

Pho Soup

Maybe you’ve heard of pho soup? Basically, pho, a Vietnamese soup that’s a mainstay for people, is nutritious and filling. Big pots of stock are made by boiling beef bones and then adding spices like ginger, cloves, cinnamon, star anise. This stock simmers for hours, so you can only imagine the healthiness! Then noodles are added! Yes, it’s divine! 

Oh, yes, to get the full experience, make sure you check out some of the Asian bowls I’ve chose for you! You just might want to grab some from Amazon! xoxo ~ally

Yield: 8+ folks

This Asian chicken noodle soup is the easiest in the world to make! You'll feel like you've taken a trip to Asia and found a street vendor!


  • 3 Tbl. toasted sesame oil
  • 2 cups carrots, small dice
  • 2 cups celery, small slice
  • 1 cup sweet onions, small dice
  • 1 Tbl. garlic, minced
  • 2 lbs. chicken thighs, boneless, skinless, cut into smaller bite size pieces
  • 8 cups chicken stock + 2 cups water
  • 2 Tbl. Asian chili sauce
  • 3 Tbl. fish sauce
  • 2 Tbl. ginger, freshly zested, heaping tablespoons
  • 4 cups broccolini, finely sliced and chopped
  • 3 cups mushrooms, combination of shitake, cremini, oyster, baby bella
  • 1 can (8 oz.) water chestnuts, sliced, with liquid
  • 1 can bamboo shoots, sliced, with liquid
  • 16 oz. dried Asian noodles
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


In a large stock pot over medium high heat, put the sesame oil, carrots, celery, onions, and garlic. Sauté about five minutes stirring frequently.

Add the chicken and brown (about 6-9 minutes). Add the chicken stock, water, chili sauce, fish sauce, ginger, broccolini, mushrooms, water chestnuts and bamboo shoots (with liquid in cans). Blend well. Cover and cook about 15 minutes.

Reduce heat to medium. Add the dried noodles and submerge in the soup. Cover and let the noodles steam cook about ten minutes. Use a pasta spoon to gently separate the noodles and mix throughout the liquid. Serve immediately.


If you don't serve the soup immediately, the noodles will continue to soak up the broth, so you could add more chicken stock before serving.

If you don't like spicy, then reduce the amount of Asian chili sauce! It's always easier to add more spicy than take it away!
