This soup was inspired by my guilty, but not so healthy, pleasure of Chicken Pad Thai. One of my favorite dishes but not exactly on the low calorie, low carb list by any means. I gotta tell you that this recipe, as most of mine, was created in a organic and rustic manner by trying to incorporate flavors from one dish to recreate it into another. Typically my go-to chicken soup is the one my family, well mostly my kids, request which is Chicken Tortilla Soup. A soup I can whip up rather quickly these days but with the new year, I needed a new dish to add to my menu planning. If you like the heat of thai curry and coconut, you'll be just as pleased with this soup as I am. The best part is that once you create the base broth, you can add whatever veggies and ingredients to suit your tastes. I will give you my version and encourage you to play around with other add-ins or swap-outs once you feel comfortable with the process.
