Asian Chicken Noodle Soup

Last night I whipped up some Asian Chicken Noodle Soup. 
Before we get into the details I have to mention that if you don't often cook Asian dishes this one may be a bit of an "investment" for your first batch. I didn't own many of these ingredients and was a little sticker shocked as I was throwing items into my cart and adding it all up in my head ($6 mirin, $10 Sriracha, $6 napa cabbage, $6 rice vinegar, $12 organic chicken, etc.). I'm sure you can find these ingredients at a lower price but I was already at my Harris Teeter and committed to the recipe. Anyway, the soup was totally worth $60 (kidding, it wasn't that much) and I'll be making it often now that I own all of the ingredients.

  2. As long as you bought all that stuff, try Thai chicken/or turkey meatballs from the Dude Diet cookbook. Amazing. My kids love them! Here's Nat's version:
