TOM KA KAI (THAI COCONUT CHICKEN SOUP)



Tom Ka Kai (Thai Coconut Chicken Soup) image

This is my husband's all time favorite Thai soup - but up until now, I haven't been able to recreate it at home. I've played around with several versions to come up with this one. The authentic ingredients make a HUGE difference - although you can use substitutions, of course, it does affect the outcome. I have been able to find the galangal root (much preferred over ginger!!), the lemongrass, and the kaffir lime leaves at my local asian market. Yum yum yum, worth the extra shopping trip!

Time 35m

Yield 4 bowls, 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 15

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced (I use a stir-fry mix of mushrooms with shitakes, oyster mushrooms, and portabellas)
3 green onions, sliced (divided)
1 stalk lemongrass
1 inch fresh galangal root or 1 inch gingerroot, grated
2 red chilies (more or less to desired heat level)
6 cups chicken stock (use good quality here)
1 (14 ounce) can coconut milk
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
fresh cilantro
fresh basil leaf

Steps:

  • In the bottom of a large soup pot, heat the oil over high heat until very hot but not smoking. I often make this is a wok on the stove.
  • Salt the chicken and add to oil, tossing to brown all the pieces. Cook about 3 minutes or until outside is browned, but not necessarily cooked all the way through.
  • Add mushrooms and toss. Allow to cook until some of the moisture is cooked out and the mushrooms are soft. Turn down heat to medium-low.
  • To prepare the lemongrass, slice and mince the lower portion and reserve the stalk to flavor the soup. You can use a food processor for this, or just mince it by hand. The woody upper portion of the stalk will be removed later, so don't chop it up, simply score it by making a few superficial cuts in it to allow it to flavor the soup.
  • Add the whites of the onions, reserving the greens. Add the minced lower portion of the lemongrass, grated galangal, and chilies. Toss until just warmed through.
  • Add the lemongrass stalk, lime leaves, chicken stock, coconut milk, lime juice, fish sauce, brown sugar and remaining onions, reserving just a few for garnish. Simmer over low heat for 15 minutes to allow flavors to blend well.
  • Taste test and adjust flavors as follows:.
  • Not salty enough - add more fish sauce.
  • Too sour - add a little more brown sugar.
  • Too spicy - add more coconut milk.
  • Not spicy enough - add more chilies.
  • Ladle into 4 soup bowls and garnish with remaining onion greens, cilantro, and basil.
  • Variations:.
  • Add more vegetables such as some sliced red bell peppers with the mushrooms.
  • Serve over wide rice noodles for a main dish serving.
  • Make vegetarian by increasing mushrooms in place of chicken and substituting vegetable stock.

THAI CHICKEN-COCONUT SOUP

Replacing full-fat coconut milk with a light version reduces fat, not flavor.

Number Of Ingredients 16

4 ounces cellophane noodles
6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1-2 red Thai (or jalapeño) peppers, seeded and finely chopped (plus slices for garnish)
1 additional red Thai (or jalapeño) pepper slices for garnish
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon grated lime zest
1/4 cup fresh lemon (or lime) juice
4 tablespoons Thai fish sauce, divided
1/2 pound shiitake mushrooms, sliced (3 cups)
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 5 ounces each), cut into 2 1/2-inch-long by 1/4-inch-wide strips
1 cup light coconut milk
2 cups baby spinach
2 tablespoon chopped cilantro (plus sprigs for garnish)
1 cilantro sprigs for garnish

Steps:

  • Place noodles in a bowl; add enough warm water to cover and let sit until soft, about 15 minutes. Drain. Combine broth, pepper, garlic, ginger, lemon zest, lime zest, lemon juice and 3 tablespoon fish sauce in a medium saucepan. Season with salt. Bring to a simmer, add noodles and cook 3 minutes more. Using tongs, transfer noodles to a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm. Add mushrooms to broth; season with salt, if desired; simmer 3 minutes more. Add chicken and coconut milk and simmer, stirring, until chicken is just cooked, about 3 minutes. Stir in spinach until it begins to wilt, about 1 minute. Add chopped cilantro and season with remaining 1 tablespoon fish sauce. Using tongs, divide noodles among 4 bowls. Ladle soup into bowls and garnish with sprigs of cilantro and slices of pepper.

THAI CHICKEN AND COCONUT MILK SOUP



Thai Chicken and Coconut Milk Soup image

Provided by Food Network

Number Of Ingredients 11

6 cups chicken stock
Zest of 3 large limes
Zest of 3 large lemons
6 heaping tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh ginger root
3 hot green chiles, halved and seeded (preferably jalapeno)
3/4 cup chopped cilantro stems and roots, washed carefully
3/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, half-frozen
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon Nam Pla, bottled Thai fish sauce
Finely chopped scallion and cilantro leaves, for garnish

Steps:

  • Place the chicken stock in a heavy-bottomed pot over high heat. Add the lime peel, lemon peel, ginger root, green chiles, and the cilantro stems and roots. Bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cook until reduced to 3 cups. Press occasionally on the solids with a wooden spoon to release flavor. Working with a sharp knife, cut the chicken breasts into broad slices, as thin as possible. Salt lightly, and reserve in refrigerator. When broth is reduced, strain into a measuring cup. Press on the solids in the strainer with a wooden spoon. Place the coconut milk in the soup pot over medium heat. Slowly stir in the reduced broth. Warm rapidly but do not allow to boil (otherwise the coconut milk will separate). When the soup is just below the boiling point, add the chicken slices. Remove from heat after 30 seconds (or when the chicken is just cooked through). Just before serving, mix together the lime juice and sugar in a small bowl. Blend in the fish sauce. Pour mixture into hot soup, season to taste and garnish soup with a little bit of chopped scallion and cilantro leaves. Yield: 6 first-course servings.
  • Optional step: If your soup has curdled a bit, or if you'd like a fluffier texture in the soup, before you add the chicken, place the soup in a blender at high speed for 30 seconds. Then return to pot, add chicken and proceed as before. As an appetizer: Looks lovely served individually in six wide, shallow soup bowls. Great starter for many kinds of meals, not just Thai. As a main course: By doubling the amount of chicken and keeping the same amount of liquid, you convert this soup practically into a stew. The six wide, shallow bowls still work well; place a half-cup of steamed white rice to one side in each bowl, then divide the soup/stew among the bowls. Serve a tomato salad on the side that has been dressed with lime juice, sugar, fish sauce, and topped with chopped peanuts and minced cilantro. If you can get the Thai ingredients: for the lime and lemon peel, substitute 3/8 cup Keffir lime leaves, 2 lemon grass stalks chopped, 3 thick slices dried galanga root.
