I adore this soup!! It is the best chicken noodle (rice pasta macaroni) soup I have ever made. I did tone down the cayenne (used about 1/4 of the amount called for) and loved the mojo mixture drizzled in. The ginger definitely does something for the soup. I kept adding more of the spice mixture until it was quite spicy for my taste. DD (toddler) enjoyed the soup as well with a little mojo too. I did the whole deal including making the stock out of white chicken parts like wings and a whole carcass with some meat still on it, necks etc. Just used the white meat in the soup. I changed nothing else and would make this again!!!

I cant believe that I haven't done a review for this recipe yet! I tried it months ago, and ever since, it is our families chicken noodle soup recipe! We use the mojo sauce on everything! If you like the burn of wasabi, you'll love the mojo too! Thanks for a fantastic (and healthy) recipe!

WOW!!!!I think I just made the best chicken soup ever! I made this for a friend who is sick and believe it is exactly what the doctor ordered. I used a good store bought chicken stock, marinated garlic chicken, added some fresh thyme and parsley. The mojo makes it however, allowing you to spice it as you please. Thanks for the recipe!
