Servings: Serves 4
In a large pot, combine broth, ginger, soy sauce, lime juice, salt, pepper flakes and basil leaves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add chicken breast and simmer 15 more minutes. Remove chicken from broth and transfer to a cutting board. Allow to cool, then cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
Meanwhile, strain broth and discard solids. Season with additional salt if desired. In each of 4 bowls, mound 1/2 cup cooked noodles and top with 3 or 4 chicken slices. Pour hot broth over top. Garnish with additional basil leaves.
