    Very nice and delicious. My family really liked and enjoyed. Next time I make it I will use skinless drumsticks to further lower the calories.

    This soup is a simple yet deeply flavored addition to my list of favorite soups. I added canned corn, ginger, seasame oil and it made this soup all the better. i might go for shitake next time to get that deeper flavor.

    Delicious! Also tastes good with mung bean sprouts added at the last minute for a bit of crunch.

    Quite bland overall. I had to add sriracha sauce to liven it up. Will not be making again.

    I used chicken thigh fillets and marinated before frying. Also grated fresh ginger and added chillies, baby corn and pak choi - was very tasty and definitely will use again!

    This has become a go-to recipe for us. Absolutely love it. I use boneless chicken thighs rather than the legs and have used different types of noodles. It is very flavourful and goes a long way. Always enough for a second day.

    Amazing! Used chicken breasts instead of drumsticks. The whole family loved it, even the picky eaters.
