Chicken and Vegetable Lemon Noodle Bowl

I know it’s getting a bit warmer outside, but I just couldn’t resist on making this Chicken and Vegetable Lemon Noodle Bowl, and not-too-mention I am still Eating Through the Kitchen Cabinets, so I had to get rid of some stuff!  I had a leftover rotisserie chicken, miso, 1 sweet potato, frozen and shelled edamame, eggs, lo mein noodles, chicken stock, garlic, sesame oil, sesame seeds and lemons.  Only thing I needed to pick up from the store were green onions, cilantro and ginger, keeping me under the 5 extra ingredient limit I am holding myself too :-).

While I am a huge lover of soup, there is just something about Asian noodle bowls that seem even more comforting than a regular soup.  I think it’s the variety of vegetables, the super flavorful broths, or even the delicious noodles offered up.  While those things are traditional, I have to admit I’ve never included roasted sweet potatoes into one of my Asian noodle bowls that I’ve made in the past and man were they good.  While everything is so umami and savory in these dishes, the natural sugar from the sweet potatoes beyond complimented everything else going on in the bowl.  This recipe is a knockout soup that you should try asap!
