Thai Green Chicken Soup

Thai Green Chicken Soup

Chicken soup with a Thai twist.  Aromatic and fragrant, this Thai green chicken soup makes a great starter or a light lunch and is a meal in a bowl!  If you want it hotter, just add another chilli.

  • 450g skinless chicken breasts - cut into bite-size chunks
  • 160ml tin coconut milk
  • 1litre gluten and wheat free chicken stock (from a stock cube is fine)
  • 5cm piece fresh root ginger - peeled and finely grated
