Chicken Noodle Soup

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu!

Chicken Noodle Soup is the dish for you if you have a flu, cold or are unwell. It is renowned the world over for being the food for winter. This aromatic broth will warm you right up on a snowy winters day.


Chicken is a meat which the Prophet Muhammad (saw) was reported to have eaten once or more than once in his lifetime.


Ginger is mentioned in the Quran in Surah Dahar Verse 17. Allah is describing the people of Paradise and He says:


And they will be given to drink there a cup (of wine) mixed with Zanjabil (ginger).

This soup contains both chicken and ginger. When eating it, we should try and remember the above, and inshallah we will gain the reward of acting out a sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (saw).



A Simple List of Ingredients:

1. Chicken or Vegetable Stock

2.Fresh Ginger
3. Fresh Garlic
4. Chicken
5. Spring Onions
6. Noodles
7. Salt and Pepper
8. Soy Sauce
9. Peas
10. Sweetcorn

Bismillah, let's begin!  



Pour the 2 pints of chicken or vegetable stock into a large soup pot, and bring to the boil.



Finely slice 2 garlic cloves and 1 large piece of ginger.



Once the stock is boiling ..



Add 1 pound of chicken



And, add the ginger and garlic.



Bring to the boil, and then simmer for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. 



Slice 6 spring onions.




Once the chicken is cooked, use a slotted spoon and remove from the pot.

Add the spring onions to the pot.



Add the noodles. I used udon noodles but you can add any type you like and as much or as little as you like.

  2. Is it really necessary to boil it for an hour after adding the chicken as I don't think it would take that ling to cook. Also if I wanted to make it spicy, what could I add and when could I add it e.g. when would I add green chillies? Thanks :-)

    1. You can cook it for as long as it takes your chicken to cook. Green chillies would be great here - I would add them with the spring onions.

    1. Yes, your idea sounds fine. Tinned ginger and garlic should be fine, if fresh isn't available. Hope your children get better soon! :)
