1 Put the stock, water, ginger, garlic and chilli into a large pot and bring gently to the boil. Once boiling, add the sliced chicken and bring back to a simmer. After about 5 minutes, once the chicken appears cooked, add the noodles. After another 3-4 minutes, add the beans and spinach. These will be cooked in about 2 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat.
2 Fish out the garlic, chilli and ginger and discard. Divide the noodles, chicken and vegetables between 4 bowls, then pour the soup into the bowls.
3 Serve with bowls of soy sauce, chilli sauce, sesame oil and any other favourite sauces.
