'my Thai' Chicken Soup

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by evelynathens

The ingredients for RSC #6 seemed to lend themselves to thai cooking, and the recent coldspell screamed SOUP out at me...this is the result. Delicious - and a healthful dinner is on the table in half an hour! Some reviewers have said that lemongrass would be nice and it probably would! Can't get it here in Greece so I just made do with what is available.

Maybe it's because it was so cold outside, but this soup was wonderful! I used my homemade stock and went a little easy on the lime. The fish sauce and the lime give the soup a little tang and freshness. Like Susie, I think a little lemongrass might be a great addition.
