Coconut Chicken Soup
Servings: 6 Yield: 10 cups Prep 25 mins Total Time 35 mins


  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 large red onion, cut in quarters and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon packed light brown sugar
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1 14 ounce can unsweetened light coconut milk
  • 8 ounces sliced cremini or baby bella mushrooms
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus leaves for garnish (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce (optional)
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges

Make It

1. In a 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven combine the broth, onion, 1 cup water, and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the onion is tender, about 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, cut the chicken into 1/2-inch pieces. Stir into the soup, along with the coconut milk, mushrooms and rice. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Stir in the 1/4 cup chopped cilantro and fish sauce, if desired. Squeeze in the lime juice to taste and top with cilantro leaves just before serving.
