Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Chicken — Make sure to remove the skin before cooking to reduce the fat content.
  • Vermicelli or angel hair pasta — Cook the pasta separately to avoid it becoming too soft and mushy in the soup.

Tips & Tricks

  • For added flavor, you can sauté the vegetables in a little bit of butter before adding them to the pot.
  • If you prefer a thicker soup, you can add a tablespoon of cornstarch mixed with water to the broth and simmer until thickened.
  • Feel free to add other vegetables like peas or corn for extra color and texture.
  • Serve the soup with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for a tangy twist.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently on the stovetop before serving.

Serving advice
