I have used this same recipe for two years now and it is the best. I have not used basil or coriander with it though but I will try it next time. Refreshing with the lemongrass and sinfully spicy. Great recipe!
mmmmm...YUMMY! Tastes like the Tom Yum at the Thai Restaurant that will charge you 4 bucks for a small bowl full. I was impressed, not that difficult either. I used low sodium canned chicken broth and substitued tofu instead of chicken and it was fantastic!
This is a yummy soup! I found a fresh frozen finely chopped lemon grass in the oriental store that I keep handy all the time. I make a big batch of this soup and freeze it in individual containers. I just pop it in the microwave every time I crave for it.
Delicious! What a great flavor. We used lime zest insetad of kaffir lime leaves (couldn't find them) and it was easy and awesome. Next time we will cut chicken in half and add shrimp. Probably would serve 4 as a first course easily but 6 is a stretch. All in all a keeper that we will make again.
I only made a couple minor changes. I thought there needed to be more "broth to chicken" ratio..I added an extra cup of water and one chicken breast instead of two.Lacking the limes leaves I also used lime zest. The poster that put it in a tea ball...that was a great idea! The one hing Ifound though is not to leave the lime zest in very long. Short time = flavor. Too long = bitter.
YUM! I used canned straw mushrooms and had to leave out the green chile (had none). I also left out the chicken because i was making this a starter. Had I followed this exactly it would be 6 stars. Thanks
Soooooo good! And I can't believe how fast and easy it was. This is a definite keeper for me. My changes: used zest of 1 lime (in a tea ball so I could remove) instead of kaffir lime leaves used half the chicken per another review and added 4 slices ginger and canned straw mushrooms to make it like my local Thair restaurant. I love the broth so next time I will keep the chicken and mushroom amounts the same but make 1 1/2 times the amount of broth. Also I'm storing the leftovers with the cilantro (coriander) and basil kept separately so I can add it fresh with every bowl.
