LEMON CHICKEN AND SHRIMP SOUP -- BONNIE'S

A delicious light soup with an Asian twist and ready in 30 minutes! When I cook a batch of chicken breast meat, I usually have a lot of leftover chicken, and this soup is a great way for me to use all that extra surplus. Serve it alone for dinner, or pair it with your favorite Asian cuisine. My family loves it. I hope yours will, too. Enjoy!

Ingredients

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite size chunks
1 cup cooked, frozen jumbo shrimp, thawed, tails removed
½ head small cabbage, knife cut. (you can use bok choy)
1 cup green onions, cut into one-inch pieces (tender green part only)
1 cup carrots, scraped and sliced into thin rounds.
6 cups better than bouillon chicken broth
1-2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1/3 cup maifun rice noodles, cut into 2 inch pieces.
juice of ½ of a fresh lemon (add at the end of cooking time) don't use bottled.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook's Note: If you do the prep work first, it is a breeze to put together.
2
Chop the chicken into bite size pieces. Thaw the shrimp. I put mine in water in a glass measuring cup and hit 30 seconds in the microwave and let it sit until it thaws. This way the shrimp won't cook and shrink.
3
Grate and slice the carrots into rounds.
4
Knife cut the cabbage.
5
In a medium size dutch oven, add the 6 cups of chicken broth, and add the carrots, cabbage, green onions, ginger, salt, soy sauce, and white pepper. (Leave the shrimp and add at the end of cooking time)
6
Put the soup on the stove and bring to a boil, covered and turn the burner immediately to low, cook about 10 to 15 minutes. Do NOT overcook this soup. Taste test a carrot round, it should be just underdone.
7
Add the noodles and remove from the heat, covered. Let sit 5 minutes.
8
Drain the shrimp and add to the pot and add juice of ½ lemon, stir gently. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
