Super Quick Store-Cupboard Noodle Soup {For Leftover Chicken or Turkey}

I love this lightening-fast soup noodle soup! It's brilliant for lunch the day after you have a roast dinner if there’s only a handful of leftover chicken or turkey lurking in the fridge. It literally takes 5 minutes from start to finish and it’s healthy, tasty and filling.

I absolutely love spicy leftover turkey tom yum soup but it requires so many bits and bobs that I don’t always have to hand. This recipe is just four ingredients including the leftover turkey or chicken and you can substitute the peas and corn for whatever vegetables you have to hand.
