    Altered ingredient amounts. I also added some things to this... I put some fresh rosemary and some ginger slices in a tea infuser and hung that in the pot as well. I also added three whole cloves of garlic, a small onion, some salt, and extra chicken to this. It turned out wonderful!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Something else. I am the author of this recipe. Just wanted to share with you my tweaked version. *2 litres of Organic chicken stock, A bag of mini carrots - I leave them as is, 1 large potato - chopped, 3 stalks of celery - chopped, 8 frozen chicken breasts - cubed, 1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil, fresh ginger, garlic or green onions. Let soup come to the boil and then add noodles. The longer it cooks, the better it tastes!  -  08 Oct 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This was great. I read all of the reviews and took a lot of the advice. I boiled my chicken with garlic & ginger and then used that water as my stock. I added salt, pepper, stock cubes and some coriander for flavour. I used more chicken and noodles than the recipe called for because we like a hearty soup! It was a hit! Thanks!  -  08 Oct 2008
