The soup was easy to prepare. The 5-spice powder has a distinct and strong flavor (either you'll love it or hate it!) so do not over-use. My 6 year old son really loved the broth and noodles. My husband added a little hot sauce (as he does to everything) for a little zing!

We weren't thrilled with this one. I agree with those who complained about the broth--it washed the spice off my chicken. I found the recipe somewhat bland--maybe reducing the broth and adding some heat would have made it appeal more to my tastes.

Really good, I did add sliced mushrooms, sliced green, red and yellow peppers and onions; we like more vegetables. Next time I will spice it up with a few drops of chili oil.

Thanks for a wonderful idea for dinner. I read this about a week ago and thought it would be a good way to use up all my stir fry veggies. This recipe is so easy that I didn't need to revisit it or print it. I made it with all the veggies I like and instead of angel hair pasta I used 2 packs of Mr. Noodles - and it still made 4 servings. This is a very tastey soup.

This recipe is very fast, easy to make, healthy, and delicious! It's closer than anything I've found to the little Japanese noodle shops in Honolulu. I didn't have the five-spice powder on hand. So, I just boiled the chicken and cut it into small pieces, added bean sprouts, chopped scallions, red pepper to make it spicy, and omitted the soy sauce. I prepared each family member's bowl with the ingredients they like, then poured the hot broth over it. Excellent! Thanks!

This was great! So easy to make! I added some Oyster Sauce and it was good. My husband loved this. Next time I might add some more spinach - my husband and I love spinach. I would strongly suggest this for all you soup lovers.

YUM! great, easy recipe. Follow the noodle guidelines though, I added too many.

I LOVED this recipe. The five-spice powder lent a wonderful extra flavor and frankly made the recipe! The leftovers went fast...
