Food and Flix + IHCC = Giada's Lemon Noodle Chicken Soup

Comfort food. So many dishes come to mind when I conjure that term. Unfortunately I caught a cold over the Thanksgiving holiday and so, comfort food means soup. At this very moment it does.



The theme at IHCC is comfort food (food to warm the belly, fill the soul) so Giada’s lemon chicken noodle soup is the star of my table at present.

Incidentally, the November movie selection at Food N Flixis Ramen Girl. While I planned a ramen noodle dish for this event, this bastard of a cold has ruined my plans, so I adapted the soup with a some cheap off-the-shelf ramen noodles.

In the movie, Brittany Murphy’s character learned the heart and soul of the Ramen Industry was not just the materials (the noodles and vegetables and broth) but the passion and creativity brought forth in her preparation of a Ramen dish.

A clash of cultures…she did not speak Japanese and was unfamiliar with customs….but it didn’t stop her.

Giada’s lemon chicken noodle soup meets Ramen Girl.




Yeah, it works. It’s comfort food.

For a slightly adapted Giada recipe, see the following link From Giada at Home, recipe can be found via Food Network HERE


Stop by I Heart Cooking Club and Food n’ Flix. Fun places, both of them.

I got the Thanksgiving cold too. I should have made some of this soup...sounds like a great fix for a cold. Hope you feel better soon!

Thank you all for your nice comments and very kind wishes. It is amazing how a little head cold can throw you off...I was a walking zombie for a few days but am on the mend - thanks!!

glad to hear you are better, must have been the soup, and Doug's comfort... I have made many variations of chicken soup, but have never thought of a lemon version, must be interesting - my favorite soup when I am sick is a roasted chicken version full of antioxidants and jalapeno to get the head cleared...if only I could find someone to make it for me, right?....

Haha so much fun! Ramen is definitely comfort food to me. Reminds me of when I was little and sick and my mom used to make it for me while I curled up in bed. Sigh. Sounds delicious! hope you're feeling better!

Thank you all so much! I actually lost 2 pounds with this cold, I guess that is why...a method I do not recommend :-)

My mom would bring me ginger ale and homemade soup when I was a kid..so soup always helps!!
