Chicken in Lemongrass Coconut Broth

Chicken in Lemongrass Coconut Broth

QTSunDoll

"I made this soup after trying it at a Thai noodle house in my area. I just kept playing around with ingredients until I got something similar. I have the seasonings adjusted to my liking, however there is an adjustment guide in the footnotes if you would like a slightly different flavor. This soup is also good with rice or pasta, but ramen seems to be the favorite. You can use any flavor of ramen noodles."

Didn't have lime leaves and did use tomatoes & less fresh ginger (personal taste). Added some baby bok choy and used ramen from my chineese grocery store. Loved the Cook's Footnotes. Awesome.
