Thai chicken soup with noodles

Thai chicken soup with noodles is a coconut milk-based chicken soup. This soup is bursting with layers of amazing flavors. It’s light and creamy, sweet yet tart, salty and citrusy. This is a version of Tom Kha Gai but without the Galangal which is an important ingredient in Tom Kha Gai.

In this Thai chicken soup with noodles I try to use easy – to – find ingredients. If you can’t find fresh or frozen lemongrass try to find some lemongrass puree.

How to make Thai chicken soup with noodles

  • Start by cutting the onion into slices.
  • Crush the base of the lemongrass with a mortar or use a hammer. To crush the lemongrass brings out the flavour. Then chop the lemongrass.
  • Peel and grate the ginger.
  • In a medium pot add some olive oil  and sauté the onion until it is translucent. Add a pressed garlic clove and continue to sauté. We want it to be transparent and not burn.
  • Add green curry paste ginger (1 tablespoon is enough, but if you want it really spicy add a little more) and lemongrass.
  • Next add hot water, chicken stock cube, fish sauce and a bay leaf and let it simmer to bring out the flavours.
  • Then slice the raw chicken fillet into “bite-size”.
  • Add 2 cans of coconut milk, the raw chicken fillet and the mushrooms to the soup.
  • Let it simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Finally remove the pot from the heat and add the lime juice.
  • Boil the egg noodles according to the instructions on the package.
  • Put some noodles in a soup bowl and pour some soup over. Top with freshly chopped cilantro and serve.
