From: 2013 WINNER - Josie Shapiro - San Francisco, CA
12 ounces Manischewitz® Egg Noodles
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons curry powder
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup coconut milk
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts(6-8 oz ea)
1/4 cup lime juice

Cook the egg noodles 2 minutes less than directed on package. Strain, run under cold water to stop cooking process, and set aside.
Heat oil in a French Oven or large, heavy bottomed pot over medium heat. Add curry powder, stirring until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add chicken. Flip to coat in curry. Add broth, orange juice and coconut milk and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low and gently simmer until chicken is almost cooked through, about 15 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, remove chicken from soup and roughly chop into bite size pieces. Return chopped chicken to soup. Add cooked egg noodles, turn heat to high and return soup to boil. Lower heat and simmer 2 minutes. Remove from heat and season with lime juice, salt and pepper.
Serve topped with fresh basil leaves.
