A healthy, fresh chicken noodle soup made with prawns, pak choi and wholewheat noodles.


  • 2.4 litres fresh chicken stock (see tip)
  • 180g wholewheat noodles
  • 80g mangetout, halved lengthways
  • 100g baby sweetcorn, halved lengthways
  • 4 x 75g heads of baby pak choi, quartered
  • 8 spring onions, sliced
  • 100g fresh beansprouts
  • 2 medium-hot red chillies, seeded and thinly sliced
  • 8cm piece fresh ginger, cut into matchstick pieces
  • 4 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 4 mini chicken fillets, cut into thin strips
  • 24 raw peeled tiger prawns
  • Small handful each fresh coriander and mint leaves


  1. Bring the stock to the boil in a large pan. Reduce to a simmer. Bring a second pan of water to the boil, add the noodles, return to the boil, then remove from the heat. Soak for 4 minutes, then drain. Divide between 4 deep soup bowls.
  2. Add the mangetout and sweetcorn to the stock and simmer for 2 minutes. Lift out with a slotted spoon and divide between the bowls. Add the pak choi to the stock and cook for 2 minutes. Transfer to the bowls with the spring onions and beansprouts.
  3. Add the chillies, ginger and soy sauce to the stock. Simmer for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook for 1 minute. Add the prawns. Simmer for 2 minutes, or until cooked through.
  4. Ladle the stock, prawns and chicken into the bowls. Top with the herbs to serve.
