Green Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

If you're feeling like something a little lighter but delicious and filling.. or if you have a cold like Simon!!

4 shallots
2 cloves of garlic
Two cooked chicken breasts, shredded (or a ready cooked chicken from the supermarket)
Green curry paste
Milk/cream/coconut milk - about 100ml
Approx 1lt hot water
2 chicken stock cubes (added to hot water)
Fresh basil
Fresh corriander
Rice noodles (or those pre cooked in a vacuum pack - avoid dry egg noodles)

Gently saute the finely chopped shallots in a pan with oil until soft, add garlic and fry for a further minute. Add a big table spoon and a bit of green curry paste and fry for a further minute. Add chicken stock and water and stir.
Add noodles until soft and noodle-like. Add cream/milk/coconut cream, chicken, and a couple of tablespoons of each herb and cook until chicken is heated through. Taste for seasoning and balance ingredients until perfect.

Serve with a sprinkle of the fresh herbs on the top.
