In a 4-quart Dutch oven cook chicken in 1 tablespoon of the hot oil over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove from Dutch oven.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to Dutch oven. Add garlic, ginger, curry paste, and cumin; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the water, coconut milk, carrots, broccoli, sweet pepper, and noodles (set seasoning packets aside). Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 3 minutes. Stir in cooked chicken, pea pods, contents of seasoning packets, soy sauce, and lime juice. Stir in basil and cilantro. Serve in soup bowls.
