Thai Chicken Noodle Soup! Creamy, but still spicy Thai red curry soup with tender pieces of chicken, totally slurpable rice noodles and some sweet corn and yellow pepper to make sure we keep it healthy and in good standing with the veg department. All you'll need is a couple of simple everyday ingredients all available from Aldi UK. This recipe is not affiliated with Aldi in any way, I just love cooking simple but amazing recipes with everyday ingredients and love to share them with you! ♥

How to Make Thai Curry Noodle Soup Step By Step
- Heat some oil in a pan and brown your chunks of chicken. Remove the chicken pieces and set them aside.
- Gently brown the ginger and garlic in the pan and add a splash of water and scrape up any brown bits from the chicken. Add the red onion and soften for about 5 minutes. Save a little bit of onion for the top of the soup bowls.
- Add in the yellow pepper, sweet corn and Thai curry paste. Stir well. Add the chicken pieces back to the pot along with the chicken stock, sweet corn, and coconut milk. Bring to a boil and turn down to a simmer.
- Add in the rice noodles and continue to simmer until they're soft. About 5 minutes. Stir in the soy sauce, lime juice, basil, coriander and honey.
- Divide into bowls and serve with some extra red onions and chopped basil.
Can you freeze Thai Red Curry Soup?
You sure can! If you're going to freeze this soup, I would suggest that you make it as directed, but skip adding the rice noodles. They won't freeze well and will turn mush on reheating. Make the soup right up until that point, and freeze it.
When you defrost and reheat the soup, then add the rice noodles into it. BUT... this soup is also extremely satisfying without any noodles at all. It's creamy enough to feel comforting and filling but without all the fat and heaviness of dairy cream. So if you are freezing either add the noodles when you reheat or feel free to skip the noodles all together.
Can this Thai chicken soup be made in the slow cooker?
You bet it can! For cooking in the slow cooker see the recipe notes, but I'll just tell you now... there will be nothing as amazing as coming home to a steaming bowl of this soup ready and waiting for you.
How long will this take me to make?
Stovetop method will take about 15-20 minutes and the slow cooker method will take about 6 hours on low heat.
