  • 14 oz coconut milk this is my very favorite brand as it has no fillers/thickeners and amazing coconut cream!
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 6 slices FRESH ginger or galangal root about a quarter size each
  • 1-2 lemongrass stalks cut into 3rds or 4ths, roughly smashed with a mallet or knife to release the flavor
  • 1 pound boned and skinned chicken thighs cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms I usually do a mix of cremini and shitake!
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice or more taste
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce my favorite brand!!
  • 1 teaspoon palm sugar or 4 drops liquid stevia, omit for Whole30
  • 1-3 teaspoons Thai Chile Garlic Sauce or paste or sriracha, check label for added sweetener
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt to taste


  • Lots of veggies would make a good addition to this soup..I love sweet peppers!


  1. In a soup pot, bring the coconut milk, chicken broth, ginger, and lemongrass to a boil.
  2. Add the chicken and mushrooms and simmer until cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove lemongrass and ginger slices.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, more or less as you prefer!!  Enjoy!
