What I'm Cooking...Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

The Most Popular Dish at the US Olympic Training Center, according to Outside magazine, is the Thai Chicken Noodle Soup.  I wanted to see why it was so popular, so tonight I fixed it for dinner.  

The ingredient list is packed full of nutritious items like lean chicken breast, bean sprouts and a jalapeno pepper.
Ingredients for Dinner
The recipe itself from the magazine was pretty easy.  I decided to make a couple changes though. First, go read the original recipe on Outside's website, then read about my adjustments below.

I roasted the chicken breast first and didn't cook it in the boiling water.  Since I wasn't creating my own flavored broth, I substituted the 1.25 quarts of water with 1 quart of (low sodium) chicken broth and 2 cups of water.  I followed the rest of the recipe exactly.

There was a nice amount of spice from the slightly pickled jalapeno peppers and the broth was so rich and flavorful.  The smell that filled the house was quite intoxicating.  I can easily see how this recipe would be the most popular at the US Olympic Training Facility.

This recipe was so good, we each had a large second serving too.  I doubt I'll make this again soon, but it has already made it into my recipe box.

Kudos Outside Magazine, Kudos.
