If you want to add a touch of the orient to your chicken soup, here’s a nice Thai style recipe
What you need:
0.5 litre (16 fluid ounces) chicken broth
4-5 kaffir lime leaves,
shredded piece bruised lemon grass
4 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
150ml coconut milk
small red Thai chile peppers, slightly crushed (to taste)
coriander leaves to garnish.
Heat the stock, add the lime leaves, lemon grass, fish sauce, and lime juice.
Stir thoroughly, bring to a boil, and add the chicken and coconut milk. Add peppers and coriander to taste.
Bring back to the boil, lower the heat to keep it simmering and cook for about 30 minutes (until the chicken is cooked through).
