Chicken Noodle Soup

I often make this soup during the week. It is a very quick and easy recipe that makes a great healthy meal. You do not need to add the chicken you can substitute for prawns or just have the noodle and vegetables if you prefer. The quickness of this soup means that you can really taste the fresh vegetables and the spring onions give a lovely crunch. I like keeping the seeds in my chilli but again you do not even have to add this. A brilliant adaptable soup!
