Asian Chicken Noodle Soup

2 big chicken breasts (or thighs)
2-4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 2-inch piece of fresh ginger, chopped or grated
2 carrots, chopped or shredded
2 celery ribs, chopped
2 t cumin
4 green onions, cut into matchsticks
6 cups chicken broth (I use base and water)
½ pound thin spaghetti
2 cups fresh bean sprouts (optional)
Fresh snipped parsley (optional)

I make this in the crock pot. Put everything but the spaghetti and bean sprouts in together for several hours, then break up the chicken, and add the last ingredients for about 15-20 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste and garnish with parsley. However, you could make this on the stove if you chopped and browned the chicken, then simmered it all for about 20 minutes.
This is adapted from a Rachael Ray recipe.
