"I love Thai coconut chicken soup, but never had the authentic and exotic ingredients the recipes called for. I invented this recipe through trial and error to make the flavors I love, without going to specialty stores. Substitute 3 chicken breasts for the chicken tenders if you desire." — Liberated woman in an apron

This was SO GOOD!! I did add some lime juice as to the recipe along with the lemon juice, and then just before serving I sprinkled fresh cilantro on top! I will definitely make this again!
I chose this recipe because, like the name says, it's made with ingredients you already have. This was the coconut/curry flavor I was looking for! I made as stated except I cubed some chicken breast and sauteed it in the pot beforehand. I also combined all the seasonings and mixed about a teaspoon in with the onions while they cooked to enhance the flavor (and added the remainder of the spices in as per the recipe). Gave this four stars as both the hubby and I thought the soup could have used a little more "oomph" (the coconut milk may have toned the flavors down a little). But definitely worth making again!
I love coconut soup but this was AWFUL!!! I should've known better than dumping that much curry powder into the pot. It was SO strong. I had to rinse everything off in a strainer and then just put it on rice.
Just what I was looking for! I followed the recipe exactly until I diced up 2 potatoes that I had microwaved for 3 minutes and added with the carrots (just to make it a bit more filling) and using half lemon half lime juice. We moved to a place without any Thai restaurants and I had a craving...this satisfied my Thai starved taste buds completely (and without having to track down lemongrass)! Thank you for sharing :)
