Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

One of the questions I get asked often is why do I bother to cook for myself since I live alone. “Isn’t it too much trouble?” 

Well, luckily I love to cook, but now that I am not cooking for a family, it doesn’t mean that I have to eat oatmeal for dinner. 

I am a meal planner and a frugal grocery store shopper, so each week I check my papers sale flyers and pick a protein to use that week. It just so happened whole chickens were on sale for .99 cents a pound, so I quickly picked up a 5 pound chicken for $5. Score! 

If you have an air fryer, did you know that you can make your own rotisserie chicken? Simply wash the chicken, pat dry, and brush on a tablespoon of melted butter. Cook in an air fryer for approximately 55 minutes, flipping once, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Since I will be using this chicken throughout the week for different dishes (chicken enchiladas, chicken and apple panini, etc.), I only seasoned with salt and pepper.

Soups are also a great way to utilize veggies at the end of the week that may be about to go bad. I found that I had a package of buckwheat noodles in my pantry (found in the Asian aisle of most grocery stores) and I also had red curry paste. I love my condiments! This came together in no time using some of my rotisserie chicken.
