Thai Chicken and Noodle Soup

This Thai Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is from The Soup Bible, by Debra Mayhew, which is one of the best soup cookbooks out there. This version of chicken noodle soup could just become a staple in your house. Make a double batch and freeze it – it can get you through the winter. The turmeric and cayenne spice is excellent at clearing your sinuses after a hard day skiing. It goes equally well with white and red wine.
