Coconut Chicken Soup

This recipe of mine is based around one of my favourite Thai soups, Tom Kha Gai. Since my easy-to-get-to local shops don't carry lemongrass, galangal, or kaffir lime leaves, I've made substitutes that do a great job of mimicking them (until I can get out to the proper shops)! I hope you give this a try.

When I make this soup, I like to use a blend of broths for a richer flavour. Here I used half chicken broth, half shrimp stock. I've added a link on how to make my shrimp stock.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

  1. Place broth, stock, ginger, green onion, jalapeno, carrot, brown sugar, and bay leaves in a large pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer on low for about 15 minutes.
  2. Stir in coconut milk and lime zest. Bring heat up to boil, then lower to a simmer.
  3. Stir in the chicken, baby corn, and mushrooms, keeping the soup at a low and gentle boil. Stir frequently, until chicken is fully cooked. Add lime juice and add salt to taste. Garnish with chopped cilantro and a few drops of hot chili sauce.

Oh I can't wait for you to try it! At first, I'd compare it too hard to the soup I based it on (tom kha gai) but when I first tried it, it was its own spectacular dish! I'm so pleased you'll give it a go!
