    Chicken Soup Asian Stlye

    Chicken Soup Asian Style
    (Asian chicken soup with coconut and coriander)

    2 pounds skinless, bone in chicken thighs and drumsticks (about 8 pieces)
    6 cups low fat chicken broth
    3 stalks lemongrass, cut into 1-inch pieces *
    1 tbsp. Grated gingerroot
    10 black peppercorns
    tsp. each ground coriander and crushed red pepper flakes
    2 cups sliced mushrooms
    1 cup light coconut milk
    cup of chopped green onions
    1 tsp. sugar
    tsp. coconut extract
    2 tbsp. Chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tbsp. Lime juice
    2 cups cooked white rice

    In a large soup pot, combine the chicken pieces, broth, lemongrass, gingerroot, peppercorns, coriander, and crushed rep pepper flakes. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes. Skim off any foam.

    Remove the chicken pieces. Strip the chicken off the bones and set it aside. Discard the bones.

    Using a wire strainer, strain the broth and discard the solids. Return the broth to the soup pot and stir in the cooked chicken mushrooms, coconut milk, green onions, sugar, and coconut extract. Cook over medium heat until the mushrooms are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the cilantro, limejuice, and the cooked rice. Serve hot.

    Makes about 6 servings

    Note* What the heck is lemongrass IC?

    You know I thought that there might be someone who might ask this so here it is. Lemongrass is an herb that grows in slender green stalks that look a bit like woody leeks. It is what gives a lemony flavor and aroma to Southeast Asian dishes. Only the bottom 4 to 6 inches of the stalk are used in cooking. Many grocery stores carry lemongrass in the produce section, or you might try looking for it at an Asian market that caters to Asian dishes. If you can not find this herb, you can substitute lemon zest for this however the aroma will not be the same.
