Healthy Thai chicken soup in a spicy, coconut broth. This cozy week-night meal is super filling and bursting with flavor.
I could not be happier that it is soup season again. I could eat soup everyday in the fall/winter and never get sick of it. This Thai chicken soup is bursting with flavor and has all the cozy vibes we want during the colder months! It has a creamy texture from the coconut milk. As well as, tons of flavor from the thai red curry paste, ginger, lime, garlic, fish sauce, and if you’re into spice add some sriracha. Just go grab a rotisserie chicken and you have the easiest week-night dinner.
I’m so into Thai flavors lately. It always tends to satisfy my cravings. Click here for my Thai coconut mussels, which remind me a lot of the broth in this soup recipe!
Since there’s just two of us at my home, this lasts us a few days! It’s a perfect meal-prep recipe. Just heat it up when you’re ready to dig in!Print
