DIRECTIONS

  • In a soup pot, combine stock, 1/2 can of coconut milk, fresh ginger if using, and the white parts of the chopped green onions. Bring to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and mushrooms, and let the chicken gently poach until it's fully cooked, about 10 minutes (or longer, depending on how thin the slices are cut). When chicken is firm and opaque, add lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar and chili paste.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings - you should have a harmonious balance of flavors. If you have too much heat, or want to add richness to the broth, add more of the coconut milk, to taste.
  • Garnish each serving with the chopped green onion, cilantro leaves, and Thai basil leaves (if using).
