DIRECTIONS

  • In 4qt or larger, heavy-bottomed pot, begin heating chicken broth and coconut milk on low-medium heat.
  • Add the other ingredients for the broth, down through the brown sugar, as you prepare them.
  • Bring broth to a slow simmer; never allow it to reach a rolling boil, and do not cover it at any time during cooking.
  • When broth is simmering, begin adding remaining ingredients starting with the chicken, as you prepare them in the order listed, stirring regularly.
  • Make sure the chicken is fully cooked by the time you add the cilantro--if you cube the chicken finely enough and use a normal length of time preparing the vegetables, this should not be an issue, but allow it to simmer a few extra minutes if necessary before adding the cilantro.
  • About a minute after adding the cilantro, taste the soup and add some additional lime juice as desired to punch up the flavor (maybe 1-2 T--don't overdo it!).
  • Serve immediately.
