This soup is really quick to make. Perfect for when you have some left-over chicken. The noodles will keep you full. You can vary the vegetables depending on what is in the fridge. You could add some finely chopped peppers at the start or some frozen peas near the end. If you don’t have noodles, you could use some cooked barley. You can make this in advance and it is perfect for your office lunch the next day.
