  • Heat oil over medium heat in a large stockpot or large, deep-walled skillet.  
  • Add chicken and cook until white (it doesn't need to be cooked through). 
  • Add remaining ingredients EXCEPT shrimp and cilantro.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring often. 
  • Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer* for about 20-25 minutes or until noodles become soft, stirring often. Add more chicken broth if necessary.
  • *If adding shrimp, add it at about 10 minutes into the simmering process.  The shrimp will need to simmer for 15 minutes to be fully cooked.
  • Garnish with cilantro before serving.
