This soup is just so easy to prepare and make. I always use left-over bones or some chicken part from the baked or grilled chicken. It's always yummy. Just sautee the onion and garlic and add the chicken. Add water for the stock. I really dislike using stock from the shops. It's doesn't taste real at all. So, I just let the chicken boil and create a more good taste. Add the salt and pepper. Then the rice noodles. Presto, soup in less than 10 minutes. Quicker than buying a pair of mbt shoes.
