COOK'S NOTES FOR THAI CHICKEN SOUP

Authentic Thai Chicken Soup uses some rather exotic ingredients which can be expensive and are unlikely to be used frequently. Some of the ingredients are likely to stay at the back of your store cupboard, only being used once or twice, until they pass their "sell by" and you eventually throw them out.

Our recipe uses more common ingredients but tastes exactly like the real Thai Chicken Soup served up in good Chinese restaurants. The use of vegetables in this soup is really a matter of taste. If sweet red peppers aren't to your taste then use carrots instead. We have used fresh chicken and fried it off before adding it to the soup. If you have any leftover chicken then use that instead, and add it directly to the soup.

As far as the noodles go we have specified rice noodles but any thin noodles will do the job just fine. Don't be afraid to experiment with this recipe, there are literally hundreds of variations, all authentic in their own way. Post any comments at the bottom of this page about how you cooked this soup.

RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS

STEP 1

Add the vegetable oil to a pan on a medium heat. Fry the red peppers for five minutes. Add the chicken strips (if cooking from fresh) and fry for 3 minutes until white. Turn the ingredients frequently.

STEP 2

Pour the coconut milk and stock into a pan and bring to the boil then turn it down to a simmer. Add all the remaining ingredients except the noodles, coriander and spring onions. Let them all cook gently for 10 minutes.

STEP 3

Add the noodles to the soup and cook for another five minutes stirring frequently.

Serve the Thai Chicken Soup into warm bowls. Sprinkle on the chopped coriander and sliced spring onions.
