I’ve been trying FOREVER to find a recipe for Thai Coconut Chicken Soup!  I searched and searched and then tried to come up with my own.  After piecing a few recipes together, and inputing a few ingredients of my own, I finally arrived at a winner!  I made the dish this evening.  Delicious!  Here’s my recipe:

Thai-Inspired Chicken Soup
Thai-Inspired Chicken Soup
1 tbls butter
1 tbls finely chopped fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 large cooked chicken breast, cut up
13.5 ounces coconut milk
2 cups homemade chicken stock
1 red or orange bell pepper, cut into thin strips
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup finely chopped basil

Heat butter in a deep saucepan over medium heat. Add ginger and garlic and saute’ briefly.  Chop the cooked chicken cubes or slices and add them to the pan. Saute’ 2-3 minutes then add coconut milk, chicken stock, bell pepper and scallions.  Bring the soup to a gentle boil then remove from heat and stir in lime juice and basil.  Add salt or hot sauce to taste.
