Today's post has a recipe that is super important to my family! We have a few things that we make when we're sick, and this Thai Chicken Noodle Soup is our favorite!
Personally, I'm so very happy that cold and flu season is almost over. It's been a rough one for us, and balancing being a parent and employee is pretty tough when your child is sick every few weeks! Having a sick kiddo is sad and stressful, and it can totally disrupt your routine. Heaven forbid that you also get sick, which adds insult to injury!
I've learned that having a few things on hand can help ease the burden. First, I make this Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Noodle Soup, which is so easy and comforting.
Sure, it's a little different than traditional chicken noodle soup, but the flavors are still mellow and it's so hearty. This thai chicken noodle soup is perfect for a sick kiddo (or parent! ) I also keep lots of saltine crackers on hand during the winter, because it's a family favorite.
- 1 lb chicken breasts
- 1 cup water
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 4 cups chicken broth

- 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
- 3 tbsp fresh chives
- 1 tbsp fresh basil (thai basil preferred)
- juice of one lime
- ⅛ tsp black pepper
- 7 ounces bean thread or super thin rice noodles (check asian aisle)
- Add chicken breast, water and soy sauce into crock pot. Cook covered on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 5-6.
- Remove chicken breast from crock pot, shred. Return to crock along with chicken broth, matchstick carrots, cilantro, chives, lime juice and pepper. Cover and allow to simmer on low for 10 minutes.
