Video: Spicy Chicken Thai Soup
See Chef John’s tasty version of spicy Thai chicken soup.
In this video, you’ll see how to make a spicy red curry soup. It’s inspired by the hot-and-sour soup that's so popular in Thai restaurants. Easy to make, it combines chunks of chicken thighs with red curry, coconut milk, lemon grass, and ginger. You’ll see how to prepare the lemon grass, a key ingredient that gives the soup its unique flavor. Simmer chicken stock with lemongrass, ginger, and garlic, and then strain out the tough lemongrass before you add the other flavorful ingredients, like red curry paste, fish sauce, and lime juice, another critical ingredient that provides the sour counterpart to the heat. Serve it with sliced jalapenos, fresh cilantro, and an extra squeeze of lime. Find top-rated Thai soup recipes.
