Try this Asian twist on classic chicken noodle soup next time you're battling a cold! Use the breast meat from a store-bought rotisserie chicken to make this extra easy. For the noodles, you could use brown rice udon, soba, or whole-wheat spaghetti. Get creative and add whatever toppings you have on hand: avocado, boiled egg, scallion, mung bean sprouts, thinly sliced mushrooms, toasted sesame seeds, lime, or sliced hot chile peppers all make great toppings.
