We gave ordinary chicken soup a hint of Thai spice by infusing the broth with freshly chopped lemon grass.


Canned chicken broth

4 cup(s), or homemade broth

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

8 oz, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Uncooked carrot(s)

1 medium, peeled and thinly sliced

Uncooked celery

1 stalk(s), large, thinly sliced

Uncooked onion(s)

1 small, finely chopped

Lemon grass

1 tbsp(s), fresh, finely chopped

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Black pepper

¼ pinch, freshly ground

Cooked egg noodles

1 cup(s)

Fresh parsley

1 tbsp(s), fresh, chopped


  1. Place broth, chicken, carrot, celery, onion, lemon grass, salt and pepper in a large saucepan. Slowly bring to a boil; reduce heat to a simmer and cook until chicken and vegetables are cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  2. Place 1/4 cup of noodles in each of 4 shallow bowls. Ladle about 1 1/2 cups of soup over each serving and garnish with parsley.


To make this soup suitable for the Core Plan, swap the egg noodles for whole wheat noodles.
