Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Manami

Wonderful way to use up that leftover chicken! Found this on A Taste of Thai web site and am posting as per requested. Update: 12/01/2009 made this yesterday and it definitely needs the red curry paste and as one reviewer said some lime juice and cilantro are a must. ;)

I made this with leftover turkey. I used a bag of broccoli slaw so I only had to chop cabbage and onions. This was a rather quick recipe to throw together. The cilantro is a MUST. I still thought it was lacking a little something so I added lime juice and that did the trick for me. I plan to add some ginger when I heat up the leftovers. Good soup!
