  • Summary

    This tangy coconut milk-based soup tastes just like your favorite Thai restaurant’s. Coconut milk shouldn’t be boiled, which makes this recipe perfect for the slow cooker.

    Ingredients

    • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 3 pounds), cut into bite-sized chunks
    • 1 quart (4 cups) chicken broth
    • 4 (14 oz) cans coconut milk
    • 3 lemongrass stalks, trimmed and cut diagonally into 1? pieces
    • 1/2 red onion, cut into two chunks with the root-end trimmed but still attached (so the layers stay together). The other half can be very thinly sliced and used for garnish.
    • 1 approximately 4-inch piece galangal root, peeled and cut into 1? chunks
    • 1 approximately 1-inch piece ginger root, peeled
    • 10 to 12 ounces mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake, cremini or brown Shimeji (pictured above). Cut larger mushrooms into bite-sized pieces.
    • 2-10 red thai chilies, more or less to taste, plus more, thinly sliced for garnish
    • 8 kaffir lime leaves
    • 1/4 cup fish sauce, more or less to taste
    • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, more or less to taste
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, more or less to taste
    • fresh cilantro
