To me, nothing is better than soup, and this combination of a classic chicken noodle soup and coconut currie is to die for.
I REALLY love soup. Almost any type of soup. Lately, I have been craving a good bowl of chicken noodle, but I just haven’t gotten around to making it - that is until today!
We got home last night after being away for Christmas and as is usual after being away the fridge was empty and we found ourselves out for dinner. Not that I mind eating out - but somehow we always bring home leftovers and never eat them. Fast forward to today and me, still with very little food in the house trying to figure out what to make. In walks leftover roast chicken so of course, the natural thing to do is make soup!
I started off thinking this was going to be a classic version of chicken noodle but then after looking at a few coconut currie recipes I figured I should kick this soup up a notch.
You probably have most of these ingredients in your fridge or pantry already which makes it a quick soup to throw together even on a busy weeknight. And it’s seriously so good, Aaron did say it is the best soup ever, so I hope you like it as much as he did!
