Quick Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

If you read and tried my recipe on Mee Kari or Curry Mee Recipe Using Instant Noodle, you will realize that this recipe is not only simple and easy but is also delicious and nutritious.

I recently experimented with vermicelli instant noodle for a quick chicken noodle soup recipe and it turned out great.

The traditional Chicken Noodle Soup consists of chicken broth, a few pieces of chicken, vegetables, and noodles. The preparation time for a good chicken broth can take at least an hour as the full flavor will be realized if it is simmered over low heat.

Therefore, if you do not have the time, this recipe with Instant Noodle is your savior. It is also ideal when you are away from home on holidays or you are a student abroad and longed for homemade cooking, but do not know-how.

So save the trouble and try this recipe instead.

Ingredients for Chicken Noodle Soup

  • 1 packet Chicken flavored Instant Noodle
  • 2 small pieces Chicken, with skin removed
  • 2 cups Water, to boil instant noodle
  • 2 cups Water, for chicken broth
  • 1 cup Bean Sprouts, washed and with roots removed
  • 2 stalks Sawi (kai choy / Chinese mustard green), chopped into pieces about 2 inch in length
  • a dash Pepper, optional
  • 4 slices Ginger, for boiling with chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt, for boiling with chicken


  1. Boil the instant noodle with 2 cups of water, but without the spice mixture. Just before it comes to a boil, remove from fire and drain all the water. Put the noodle aside while you prepare the chicken broth. As mentioned in my earlier recipe, you want to remove all traces of any coloring substance from the instant noodle. It is not healthy. So make it a habit of doing this all the time. For this recipe, I use the instant rice vermicelli noodles. You can also use the egg instant noodles.
  2. In a separate pot, boil the chicken pieces and ginger with 2 cups of water. Add salt and if required pepper. When the chicken is cooked, add the noodle, sawi and bean sprouts to the mixture. Continue to boil for another minute
  3. Then add the spice mixture and continue to boil for half a minute.
  4. Pour this noodle mixture into a bowl and serve while it is still hot. If required add a bit of pepper for another flavoring.
  5. For a truly Malaysian feel to this Chicken Noodle Soup, add a few slices of fresh red chillies, then serve in bowls with chopsticks.

Variation to this Simple Instant Noodle Chicken Soup

For some variety to this dish, you can add mushrooms, carrots, fried shallots, fried garlic, spring onions, and soy sauce.

Instead of chicken, you can use beef or seafood varieties that can include prawns and squids.

Chicken Noodle Soup for Cold and Flu

If you have a cold or flu, not feeling well or have a fever, make Chicken Noodle Soup. It will be good for you, trust me.

Travel to Malaysia and Taste the Many Versions of Chicken Noodle Soup

Malaysia is a melting pot of diverse cultures, races, and traditions. This makes Malaysia a unique holiday experience to savor not just on its sights but also on its many tastes and flavors of its foods.
