I want to make this, but I'm no good with food. I want to make it, freeze it then take it to uni with me (I commute)and eat it at lunch time (there's a microwave it can be warmed up in).
1) If I use chicken that is already cooked to make it with can I freeze chicken that is already cooked?
2) Will it be ok to take it from the freezer in the morning then keep it in a bag for 5 hours till it's ready to eat, then defrost/heat it up in the microwave?
I like to eat warm stuff at lunch time but want to make my own food.

If you want to eat warm stuff at lunch then you should eat a hand warmer.

it'd be fine, you can freeze cooked meat and tbh it will probably take more than 5 hours to defrost so I don't think you'll have any problems there

This is indeed a good soup to make, but looking at the recipe, it screams leftovers. I think I would make a chicken stirfry and have a bit of spring onion and mushrooms left over along with left over chicken to make up the soup. If you end up buying raw ingredients to make this soup, unless you make a job lot, you are going to end up chucking stuff in the bin, unless you can think of another meal for spring onions, mushrooms and sweetcorn.
PS - Never buy cooked chicken unless you are loaded. Cheapest way to buy chicken is to buy a whole chicken £4 - 5 and butcher it to give you 2 breasts, two legs, two wings and two thighs - that is at least 4 - 5 meals if you do it right!
