Thai Chicken Soup

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. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia


  • 2 inches of galanga root
  • 5 stalks (the bottom 6 inches) of lemon grass
  • 5 loation leaves (these smell like celantro and look like dandelions)
  • 5 kaffir (lime) leaves (try lemon balm)
