Dukan Diet Cruise Phase Recipe:Shirataki Chicken Noodle Soup

I haven’t posted a recipe for a while so I thought I’d post a couple of recipes for noodle soup using Shirataki noodles – one for meat eaters that uses chicken and one for vegans/vegetarians that uses tofu.  This post has the chicken version and here is a link to the recipe for Tofu Shirataki Noodle Soup.

Shirataki Chicken Noodle Soup


  • 1 litre of chicken stock
  • 2  chicken breasts with skin removed
  • 1 teaspoon of finely chopped fresh root ginger
  • 2 finely chopped cloves of garlic
  • 100g Shirataki noodles
  • 4 thinly sliced mushrooms (omit on PP day)
  • 2 shredded spring onions (scallion)
  • 1 finely sliced spring onion (scallion) for decoration
  • 2 teaspoons of soy sauce


  1. Put the stock in a pan.
  2. Add the chicken, ginger and garlic.
  3. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes, until the chicken is tender.
  4. Take the chicken breasts out and pull into bite-size pieces using two forks discarding any bones.
  5. Return the chicken to the pan with the noodles, mushrooms, shredded spring onions and the soy sauce.
  6. Simmer until the noodles are tender.
  7. Serve with the finely sliced spring onions scatter over the top of the soup.

    I am eating alot of salmon (meaning almost 4 days per week but only one piece per day) is this going to slow down my weight loss as salmon is full of oil. Thanks

      Hi Marinda

      I’d recommend eating a wide variety of different foods rather than sticking with the same foods. Salmon is an oily fish but the oil is very good for you so it needs to be included in your diet unless it is preventing you losing weight.

      Kind regards

    Hi Amber
    Just discovered these noodles! I stir fried some whole raw prawns added garlic, chilli, ginger, coriander, soya sauce and a bit of water, then aded the noodles and stirred. It was delicious and done in minutes, so filling.
    I’m trying this soup next. Thank you!

    Hi Amber,
    Just finishing my second week on the Dukan Diet Plan (5 days attack followed by 8 days On Cruise) and have lost 10 pounds.

    Just came across your site, and it is so informative and interesting and visualy very well put together,I will be coming back here each day.
    Question: What are Shirataki Noodles? Are they allowed in the Cruise phase? And are they available in Ireland- I live in Dublin?
    I am going to continue looking at the Posts and Lists of Contents on your site.
    Keep up the great work!

      Hi Cat

      Congratulations on your weight loss so far and thank you for your kind comments about my site:)

      You’ll find some information about Shirataki noodles here – http://thedukandietsite.com/1798/shirataki-noodles-on-the-dukan-diet-or-other-low-carb-diet/ These noodles are allowed in all phases of the diet and there are no limitations on how many you eat.

      These noodles are fairly specialized food at the moment and don’t seem to have hit the supermarkets. They can be purchased online or you may be able to find them in health food stores or oriental food shops. Dr Dukan also sells them in his Dukan online store.

      Best wishes

    Thank you, Amber! How true! What other garnishes do you use to make the meals more attractive? I have used parsley and dill in many dishes as well as basil.

    Best wishes,

      Hi Sheila

      Here are a few ideas – chopped chives, sliced gherkins/pickle, onion rings, a sprinkle of paprika on a yogurt dressing or a little yogurt in soup. I’ve used herbs like basil and flat leaf parsley topped with finely chopped onions as a very small side salad/garnish on PP days. I’ve also added a teaspoon of chopped tomato to the garnish or a finely sliced tiny tomato if I’ve not used my daily tomato puree allocation in another meal.

      Best wishes

    Your Shirataki Chicken Noodle soup recipe looks delicious. I plan to try it this week and I use Miracle Noodle because it hs no tofu and alos comes in various shapes and sizes to add to the soup. Loved your adding the spring onions on the top!!

    • Amber on April 9, 2012

      Hi Sheila

      I’m pleased you want to try the recipe. I believe garnishing food is very important as it makes it look so much more attractive.

      Best wishes
