This was phenomenal, but I had to make some changes based on what I have available. I used leftover roasted chicken & doubled it (so no oil); I used homemade chicken stock for the water & I doubled that too; used 1 tbsp. ground ginger; 4 tbsp oyster sauce; doubled the cayenne; omitted the turmeric; added garlic powder, dried cilantro, a heaping tsp of dried lemongrass, & 4 tbsp. cream of coconut. I cooked my green onion in the soup & think I might use the entire sheaf next time. I kept the coconut milk & lime juice quantities the same (my husband added more red pepper & more lime juice at the table). I will definitely make this again, and I will properly double the recipe when I do. (Was afraid, this time, that we just wouldn't like it, but we SO did.) I can't speak to this recipe's authenticity as we'd never had a Tom Ka Gai that we liked, so I just kept adding & subtracting things until I reached a flavor that *I* liked. Thank you SO much, this was so good :)
