"I'm a little bit obsessed with Korean-style chicken soup and have read a ton about it," says Rach of the super-flavorful veggie-packed soup with hand-cut noodles and crispy chicken. "Korean noodle soup is like a love letter, and I've read so many beautiful stories about it that have literally brought me to tears. I think I've made [this recipe] as easy as I possibly can, and I do want to point out that you can buy hand-rolled fresh Korean noodles online or in person. Not a big deal, and they cook very quickly. But if you can't do this or don't want to or you just want to make this, like, tonight, I have one word for you: linguine." It works great, and you may already have some in the pantry!
