Aromatic Chicken and Corn Noodle Soup

For this recipe I wanted to take what I think is a classic in comfort food – chicken and corn noodle soup – and give it a twist. For me, the fundamental flavours of South East Asian cuisine – ginger, lime, fish sauce – are a perfect match for the bland warmth of a wholesome noodle soup. Try it and you’ll agree that it’s definitely one to curl up with on the sofa!
