Tom Kha Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

By An Edible Mosaic

Look for kaffir lime leaves at your local Asian grocery store. If you can’t find them, you can instead add 1/2 tsp freshly-grated lime zest.

Pro tip

Step 1

The aromatics. Add the chicken broth, garlic, galangal (or ginger), shallot, lemongrass, Thai chili, tamari sauce, fish sauce, and coconut sugar to a 3-quart pot over high heat. Bring to a boil.

Add the chicken and veggies. Once boiling, stir in the coconut milk, chicken, red bell pepper, mushrooms, and kaffir lime leaves. Bring back up to a boil, and then boil for 3 minutes, or until the chicken is fully cooked.
