Simple Thai Chicken and Noodle Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by MidsummerNightSprite

I originally found this in FoodNetwork magazine. We've made a few modifications, but it is definitely a keeper! Nearly all the ingredients are easy to keep on hand for when there's a bit of extra chicken that needs dressed up.

Simple and delicious! The family loves it! More complex than you would expect from the short list of ingredients. I used a mild green curry so it wasn't too spicy for even the spice-haters.
