Thai-Style Chicken Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by The Flying Chef

This is a wonderful quick and easy soup that has some wonderful flavours and smells delicious while cooking. It makes for a wonderful lunch or serve as a dinner with some bread or you could add noodles to make it more substantial. It sounds like a lot of ingredients but they all come together with ease and in all it only takes about 30-35 Min's to get on the table.

What a fabulous soup. Very easy to make & reasonably fast, with a great flavour. I added rice noodles for a little extra filling, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap Feb 2009
