HOW TO MAKE THAI CHICKEN SOUP WITH COCONUT MILK (TOM KHA GAI)

Thai Chicken Soup is packed full of bold ingredients like mushrooms, Thai red chili paste, garlic, ginger, Lemongrass, lime juice, and coconut milk.

Let’s get started!

In a dutch oven over medium heat, add the avocado oil, onion, garlic, lemongrass, ginger, and carrots.

My favorite shortcut ingredient is frozen diced onion.  Onions make me cry like a baby so I hate chopping onion!

Another shortcut ingredient I love is ginger paste and lemongrass paste.  These 2 ingredients provide so much flavor without having to grate a ginger root, or chop a lemongrass stalk.  These 2 ingredients are found in the produce section of most grocery stores.

Sauté until carrots begin to soften…about 8 minutes  You could buy these frozen as well!

Once you’re finished with that add in the sliced mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes more.

Now we add in chicken and continue to sauté until the chicken is no longer pink.

This should take about 5 minutes.

Now you can add in the chicken broth, coconut milk, fish sauce, lime juice and red curry paste.

These ingredients add so much flavor so I wouldn’t skip them.

Stir and let that simmer for 20 minutes uncovered.
