Coconut Chicken Soup

This recipe was inspired by Jaden’s Lemongrass Chicken and Coconut Soup from her fabulous book, The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook.  I received it in the mail on Friday and played with it all weekend long.  It is a captivating book, full of gorgeous pictures (which she styled and shot herself) and easy recipes.  I’m in love.  Last night, I made this Coconut Chicken Soup, Jaden’s Grilled Fish with Kabayaki Sauce (also from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook) and some stir fried broccoli.

The food was so good that there was not enough to go around.  Never have I seen my boys gobble up fish so quickly.  This is a very family friendly cookbook and frankly, I cannot say enough good things about it.  Stay tuned and I will share my version of Jaden’s Kabayaki Sauce in an upcoming post.

Meanwhile, enjoy this hearty soup.  Tis the perfect season for it.

I love Asian food, it is so tasty, accessible and easy to make.  I plan on having many fun evenings with The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook, in fact, I think it will edge out the time I spend with my gluten free cookbook, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, for this week.

  1. This soup was terrific. I was counting on my kids not liking it so there would be leftovers but no such luck! MY daughter says it reminded her of a creamy clam chowder soup. It is amazing that the little bit of fish sauce can add so much flavor. The soup also would be great with shrimp of fish if you do not feel like using chicken.

  2. Heyy. Just to let you know this is linked in the nut free recipes but it contains coconut ( which has the potential to cause tree nut allergy symptoms) So those of you with nut allergies use caution please. :)

  3. HEY all!!

    I have a question.
    I really need to start eating health but live on the road for work. I do get an apt but never know when they send me out. Does anyone have any good ideas on simple meals that don’t require a lot of storage, plus inexpensive .
    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!

    • Buy some disposable plastic containers and try and make 5 lunches on a weekend. Could be sandwich, salad, or soup. I lived on the road 18 months and that is what worked for me.
