Thai Chicken Soup is a unique type of chicken soup that brings the favor of the orient to your table. Easy to make, delicious to eat. This recipe is a big favorite with my family because the coconut milk adds a special taste.
2 inches of galanga root
5 stalks (the bottom 6 inches) of lemon grass
5 loation leaves (these smell like cilantro and look like dandelions)
5 kaffir (lime) leaves (try lemon balm)
some small green chilis
2 cups of angle mushrooms (these look like oysters)
4 cups of coconut milk
1 lb chicken breasts, cut in bite-sized pieces
Boil the milk in a pan until the oil starts to separate, add the greens, then the chicken, some fish sauce, and the juice of one lime.
Garnish with cilantro (Corianda) leaves.
