Asian Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

“One night I didn’t have any noodles for my chicken soup, so I gave it an Asian twist with wonton wrappers. It was great! Don’t skip the celery leaves; they bring great flavor to this soup.”—Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota

"Outstanding soup! Just loved it! Couldn’t find chilli garlic sauce, so used 2 tbs Hot Chilli Sauce and 2 heaped tsps of minced garlic. Didn't use mushrooms as I don't like them. The flavour was fantastic! Didn’t use the wonton wrappers for the noodles; used vermicelli noodles instead. Added capsicum and fresh chilli because I like lots of vegies. This could now be my favourite soup. I actually cooked this in the slow cooker - just put the chicken breasts in and then shredded them when they were cooked. I love tasty and flavoursome soups and this one exceeded my expectations! Thanks for an amazing soup and a new favourite too! 10/10."

"Very good, but way to hot for us. Didn't have "chili sauce" so used Sambal Oelek. I don't know it to be that much hotter than "chili sauce" when using in cooking. Will make again and try using like a Frank's RedHot SWEET chili sauce or maybe just less "chili sauce". Stayed tuned for update."

"This soup was fabulous and a HUGE hit with my whole family. Two of us are lightweights when it comes to heat, so I only used 1T. of the chili garlic sauce which was perfect for us. The others added a spoonful to their bowls to kick up the heat. I also only used 8 oz. of wonton wrappers. After reading other reviews, I added them a little at a time, stirring as I dropped them in. No problems with sticking and I didn't find them to be soggy at all - just like cooked pasta. This one definitely makes it into our "keeper file"."

"Great flavor and easy enough to make. The wonton wrappers do get soggy. For an easy fix either buy fried wonton strips or fry the wrappers and make your own. I served this soup and kept the wontons on the side and let everyone add their own. This way the wonton strips kept their integrity and added the extra crunch texture everyone seemed to love. The author is absolutely right - DO NOT skip the celery leaves!"

"My husband and I enjoyed this flavorful dish. The only thing I might change next time would be to cut down slightly on the amount of teriyaki sauce, as the flavor was very prominent. As others recommended, I too recommend adding the wonton strips in batches, as they inevitably clump a bit."

"I agree with the rest of the reviews, I will cut the amount of wontons in HALF next time I make this. They got really clumpy when I added them, and I added them slowly. But it still tasted amazing! YUM!"

"We absolutely loved this soup! The only thing I'll do differently next time will be to add the wonton strips slowly so they don't clump together as much, but we loved it anyway."

"Absolutely wonderful. I used cholula's chili garlic hot sauce and left out the basil and green onions. Definitely a new regular in my house!!"
