Chicken Noodle Soup


  • 1 and a Half Litres of Chicken Stock (or miso soup mix)

  • 2 x Boneless, Skinless chicken breasts

  • 2 tsp fresh chopped root ginger

  • 2 cloves of fresh chopped garlic

  • 100g rice or wheat noodles

  • 100g sweet corn, canned or frozen

  • 100g chestnut mushrooms, thinly sliced

  • 4 x spring onions, thinly sliced

  • 4 tsp soy sauce

  • Some chopped coriander and sliced chilli (optional) to garnish


Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Place the chicken vegetables and onion in a baking dish. Season and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, place the quince paste, vinegar and 1/4 cup of the chicken stock in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until the quince paste dissolves.

Brush 1/2 of the quince mixture over the chicken. Combine remaining stock with the remaining quince mixture and pour around the chicken. Scatter over the rosemary. Roast, basting occasionally, for 30 minutes or until the chicken is golden and cooked through.
