Coconut Lime Chicken Soup Recipe

Coconut Lime Chicken Soup Recipe

 

My Foodie Penpal outdid herself this month!  She sent me this recipe and almost everything to make it…  I’m not going to lie, normally this isn’t something I would make.   I’m not a coconut fan, I’d never had coconut milk, and honestly I would be intimidated by the name.  Sounds like something way too fancy for me to make!  However, since I had everything and HATE figuring out what to do for dinner, I went for it.  I am SO glad I did!!!

If you haven’t tried coconut milk, it’s really good!  Even though I don’t really like coconut…  Cheryl has officially made me believe that if I get stuck on an island I could indeed deal with the coconut milk!  Yay, I won’t starve!  (I’m not a big seafood fan, LOL)  Now I just have to figure out how to open them and remember!  LOL.

Cheryl pointed out that this recipe is very versatile, so feel free to modify it!  Also, I loved it so much that I ended up eating some of the leftovers for breakfast the next day.  I tried it cold—> still AMAZING!!!  So this soup really can be served hot OR cold!

Anyway, the recipe is courtesy of Miss Cheryl from Florida and her awesome July Foodie Penpal Box 2013.  A HUGE thank you, Mrs. Cheryl, because the soup is amazing and one of my new favorites!!!

Ingredients:

1/2 pkg dried flat rice noodles

3 1/2 cups GF chicken broth

1 1/2″ piece of ginger, sliced

1 (13oz) can coconut milk (full fat is better, but can use light)

2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced

6 Tbsp lime juice

3 Tbsp fish sauce

2 tsp brown sugar

1/2-1 jalapeno, thinly sliced OR 5-10 jarred jalapenos chopped

1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped

Directions:

Break noodles into thirds (a little bigger than bite size), then prepare

noodles according to package. Drain and set aside.

In a large pot, bring broth and ginger to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and

simmer for 10 minutes then add coconut milk and chicken.

Once chicken is completely cooked (about 5 minutes), add the remaining

ingredients and simmer another 10 mintues. Season to taste with salt if

necessary.

Add noodles just before serving.
