Fabulous Thai Chicken Soup

Fabulous Thai Chicken Soup

I can’t believe that I am cooking Thai food again. After cooking the Pumpkin, Prawns And Coconut Soup, the thoughts and taste never seems to go away. I remembered I ate 3 bowls and still long for more of it. It drove me to cook again, but with chicken this time and lots of coriander leaves and more chilies. Again, it turned out faboulous. I ate 3 bowls again! Carry on like this, I think I’m going to be in trouble with my weight soon. Well, so thankful that my friends want me to join them for badminton. So, I’m playing 4 times a week now. That’s a lot of calories that I’ll burn off each time…..just very comforting to justify myself for all food indulgence…haha.

Right, here’s another healthy Thai recipe to share:

Ingredients A
600g chicken meat (cut into strips)

Ingredients B (spices)
4 lemon grass (pound)
1/2 whole garlic (peel and chop)
1 big onion (peel and dice)
1 chili (optional)

Spices to fry

Spices to fry

Ingredients C

Add water and let it boil

Add 4 cups of water to the pot and let it boil for sometime for the flavour of the sices to infuse into the soup. Lastly add in all the rest of the other ingredients in Ingredients C. Turn off the heat when it comes to a boil. Enjoy this beautiful Thai soup. The aroma and taste are just so beautiful. I will surely cook it again soon.

lovely soup - I can see why you ate 3 bowls, wish I was there to help you eat it…

Mary  on November 7th, 2009

@Shirley - Coconut milk always gives that extra aroma to a dish. We love it in curries and in desserts too. Now I’ve found a new love for it…in soup!

@foodlovee - Thai food seems to be very popular internationally. Looks like you have tried many dishes. I hope to try more.

@Divina - Totally agree with you that the aroma that permeates the whole house is just so lovely….natural fragrance :)

@Drick - Oh…if you are here, I’ll surely have to triple or quadruple the amount, otherwise we will end up fighting over the soup…LOL
