Chicken soup and stew recipes from Martha Stewart and Everyday Food, including chicken noodle soup, chicken and rice soup, cock-a-leekie, tortilla soup, posole, Asian chicken soup, chicken and dumplings, slow-cooker chicken stew, chicken and butternut squash stew, and lots more.
Inspired by Malaysian laksa, a traditional dish of noodles in hot spicy broth, this easy-to-prepare soup gets its complex flavor foundation from store-bought curry paste. It can be topped with cooked chicken (such as the Chicken with Basil and Lime), seafood, or tofu. Try other traditional garnishes, such as scallions, cilantro, chiles, peanuts, or hard-cooked eggs.
This recipe will serve four as a first course or light lunch. To serve the noodles as a meal, add a few cups of diced firm tofu or cooked chicken breast to the simmering broth in step 3.
