This was very good! I think I might like chicken thigh better in stir-fry and use chicken breast next time in the soup. The texture of dark meat seemed a tiny bit rubbery to me in soup although it is nothing against this recipe, which is very good! Thank you for posting.

Escellent.!! The lemon grass added a good dimension to this soup. Just the right amount of heat. Lovely!
