Chicken Noodle Broth

More from Nigel Slater’s The Kitchen Diaries tonight. The description for this one sounds nicer than the end result I got though.

The premise is pretty simple and it’s a damn fast recipe to make. Bring the chicken broth to a simmer, add the cooked chicken and chopped mint and coriander. Squeeze in a lemon and throw in some cooked noodles and you’re done.

However, I couldn’t find a decent chicken broth so I used a decent chicken stock instead – end result was too watery. I also thought it looked a bit insubstantial so I threw in some extra noodles and some peas. End result tasted OK but it was just a bit odd… possibly because it was so watery the whole thing felt quite unsatisfying.

An extra large slice of Christmas cake followed to compensate.
