      Yummy! I'm sitting and enjoying this soup as I write the review, and I have to keep stopping to take another bite. This has my favorite Thai flavors- coconut milk, lime juice, and fish sauce; which makes this taste just like my favorite curry. I love how the gentle poaching leaves the chicken so moist and tender; and how the pepper flake gives a gentle bite to the creaminess of the coconut milk. I found that I didn't need any extra salt or pepper, the fish sauce added enough salt for my taste. This is perfect as is; if I felt the need for more vegetables in my meal, I'd add a few sliced snow peas, but otherwise, just perfect. Thanks for a lovely lunch!

      * Reviewed for ZWT6 Whine and Cheese Gang* Very tasty soup. Lovely poached chicken and mushrooms in a flavourful soup. We added steamed rice to our soup and this dish really makes a full meal. Photos to be posted
