Great recipe. I used chopped chicken from a rotisserie.

I made this today for lunch and it was DELICIOUS!! My 5-year-old (who is a very picky eater) also loved it. YUM! I will be making this again. Maybe even with shrimp or tofu. Thanks.

I love coconut and curry! This sounds very exotic.

I think I’ll try this tonight! I’m not a fan of spicy but my hubby is, so hopefully I can handle some heat!

This is a quick and easy soup! Family loved it. I did skip the green peppers, but still so much flavor.

Very easy, and quite tasty. A little heartier (chicken/veg to broth ratio), but turned out wonderfully. I also served over rice. No complaints from my 4 small children. My 4-year old asked for seconds.

I would give this a full 5 stars but for my personal taste it lacked a little in…oomph. But it was a wonderful base to work with! If you’re looking for a little more pop of flavor I would definitely recommend adding more curry powder (I had to at least double it, but that’s just me) and perhaps try red pepper instead of green? I think I’d like more coconut flavor too, so next time I’d pour the soup over the Thai Coconut Rice recipe from this site. But I will definitely keep this and use it as a starter to just taste and change as I go!

I agree that this was an easy recipe that had lots of flavor. I used shredded rotisserie chicken, red pepper instead of green, and lowfat coconut milk. My only complaint is that the meal was a little too thick for a soup…I was disappointed that I had not made rice. I will be making it again,though, thanks for the yummy recipe!

This was such a quick and easy recipe, especially if you already have roasted and cut up chicken on hand. Very good, even my two year old loved it! If I was making it for adults only, I would have spiced it up a little, but it was also fine as is for everyone. I used regular coconut milk and thought the soup had just the right amount of richness.
