Woman's Weekly recipe A chicken miso soup is a healthy, light soup using Japanese miso that's perfect if you're watching the calories or have a cold coming on. This miso soup makes a great low calorie snack or meal - at 132 calories per portion, you can enjoy this soup any time of the day! It's really warming and full of delicious mushrooms and tender chicken - and if you like, you can also add noodles right at the end if you want it to be a bit more filling (bear in mind this will bring up the calorie count, unfortunately!). For a really flavoursome soup that's so easy to make, this chicken miso option is such a good choice - plus it's really easy to get your hands on miso so you've no reason to not give it a go!


  • 2 x 15g Japanese miso paste sachets (we used Clearspring)
  • 1 chicken breast, skinned and sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp grated ginger
  • 8 shiitake mushrooms, sliced
  • Dash of soy sauce
  • ¼ Savoy cabbage, finely shredded

You’ll find miso paste sachets among the oriental or Japanese ingredients in the supermarket.


  1. Pour 600ml (1 pint) boiling water into a pan and whisk in the miso paste.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the cabbage, and simmer for 10 mins.
  3. Stir in the cabbage, cook for 3 mins and serve.
