You could cook the chicken with chicken stock instead of water.
If using chicken stock don't add too much salt to the soup as stock and soy sauce already have salt in it.
You could add bone-in chicken, after the chicken has cooked well remove the bones from it and add the shredded chicken to the soup.
You could skip adding pasta or noodles, however it helps in thickening the soup.
