Sesame Miso Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

I know when the cold weather hits that there is one thing I always crave: soup! There’s just something about a big bowl of piping hot comfort food that hits all the spots. I’ve revamped the classic cold weather soup, Chicken Noodle Soup, into something new and so delicious. Sesame Miso Chicken Noodle Soup is where it’s at this soup season!

Litehouse® has some new salad dressings that I’ve been anxious to try. Litehouse® Sesame Miso Dressing & Dip caught my eye because I love Asian flavours and wanted to incorporate it into a comfort food meal that I knew my family would enjoy.

I smothered chicken breasts in Litehouse® Sesame Miso Dressing & Dip and baked it in the oven. I tried a small piece of the chicken when it came out of the oven just to make sure the flavour permeated the chicken and oh my gosh was it good! Seriously. You could just eat the chicken like that if you wanted to.

The ingredients in the soup are easy to find. I live in a small town so we don’t have access to the fancier ingredients like the big city folks would. It’s just simple veggies like Bok Choy, carrots and shiitake mushrooms. You could use regular button mushrooms if you prefer.

Preparing ingredients for Sesame Miso Chicken Noodle Soup

I love to use Litehouse® herbs and spices when I can in my recipes. I used Litehouse® Freeze Dried Ginger and Litehouse® Freeze Dried Garlic to flavour the soup. It saves me time in the kitchen to not have to peel ginger and garlic or mince anything. It also saves my hands from getting the smell of garlic all over them, too.

I used rice noodles to keep with the Asian theme. If you can’t find rice noodles, you can substitute regular pasta noodles. The soup flavour won’t change.

The beauty of this recipe is that you can serve it for lunch or even as a part of a dinner meal with some side dishes. We have soup for dinner lots in our home. We could all use a little comfort food this time of year.

My spouse especially adored this recipe. We had some leftovers and he ate it all. He loved that it wasn’t spicy, but still had yummy flavor with every bite. The chicken was so tender and the sesame miso really came through in the soup.

I hope your family loves this soup as much as mine has. Here’s to comfort food!
