I recently came across a recipe for Soba Noodle Bowl. The soup in the photo accompanying the recipe looked delicious, so I decided to make some for dinner. What happened next is one of those happy accidents that turns into something great.
The recipe called for soba noodles and I did not have any on hand. So I used whole grain spaghetti noodles that I had. It also called for sugar snap peas, but they go in at the end of cooking since they cook quickly, and I completely forgot to add them!
What I ended up with looked like homemade chicken noodle soup but because it came from a recipe that was not for chicken noodle soup, the extra flavoring made for delicious results! Because the chicken is cooked in the broth along with everything else, it turned out moist and tender - so good!
Here then, is the recipe for Soba Noodle Bowl Turned Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup:
- In a large pot, heat up 28 oz. of chicken broth along with 2 cups of water to boiling.
- Meanwhile, slice four chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Also slice four large carrots and a jalapeno pepper.
- When the broth is boiling, add the chicken and veggies to the broth. Also add four tablespoons of soy sauce and 6 to 12 oz. of spaghetti noodles (however you like your soup - lots of noodles or less noodles).
- Cover and cook for about seven minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and the spaghetti noodles are cooked.
Notes for Knoxvillians:
If you do want soba noodles, you can find them at Earthfare, along with natural chicken.
