This is my version of the Thai soup Tom Kha Gai. I didn't use the kaffir lime leaves, galangal root or lemongrass that you'll typically find in the regular recipe b/c those ingredients can be hard to find. I wanted a version I could easily make with what I had on-hand & came up with this! So don't expect this soup to be exactly like real Thai coconut chicken soup... the flavor is slightly different, but I think still delicious in it's own right! Let me know what you think :-)
