Thai styled dishes are so much fun because they always have a unique flavor. This Thai style Chicken Coconut Soup Recipe has a bit of a tropical flavor because of the lemongrass, lime, ginger, and delicious coconut milk. I love anything ginger, so this recipe definitely caught my attention.
When it comes to soups, we may get stuck in the habit of sticking to boring, traditional soups. I had been making far too many potato soups lately, so when I saw this I ran out to pick up some lemongrass and coconut milk and made this the same day!
The creamy soup is filled with delicious flavor, and stuffed with sliced mushrooms and soft, boneless chicken. It definitely has a bit of a sweet flavor, but I love it! Top this with some cilantro and you’ll have a gourmet looking and tasting Thai style Chicken Coconut Soup.
I’ve only made this once so far, but I can’t wait to make this again for my whole family to try! Thai dishes are a popular favorite of many people. They taste so much different than typical American dishes and are sure to spice up some of your meal routines. Try this amazing and easy soup today and you’ll be dishing out seconds in no time!
