Method

  1. Tip the stock into a saucepan, then stir in the curry paste, fish sauce, sugar, lime juice and most of the zest. Bring to the boil, then add the mushrooms and whites of the spring onion. Cover, then simmer for 2 mins.
  2. Stir in the chicken and most of the spring onion greens to gently heat through, then serve ladled into bowls and scattered with the remaining lime zest. Serve with extra lime juice, sugar and fish sauce on the side so everyone can adjust their own bowlfuls.

Very tasty. Made for two so halved ingredients. Personally will add less lime next time. But quick and easy low fat meal for those on a diet!

This was so simple and quick to make and tasted amazing. 1 tbsp of the red curry paste from my local indonesian was really hot and not for the feint hearted, but we loved it. Couldn't get portobello so used shii take instead. Served it on top of noodles to bulk it out a wee bit and make a full meal from it. Will definitely become a regular. Fantastic! :)

Have made this 3 times in the last couple of weeks. Each time have cooked chicken in the stock before using it to make the broth. Timings are perfect. A quick, easy and very healthy supper.

Delicious flavours - I used prawns instead of chicken and slightly overcooked them they only need 4 mins cooking time and I had them in the soup for 6 mins. I also added hot chilli flakes which gave it a good kick

Lovely and fragrant, I added some low fat, low carb chinese noodles to pack it out. Very tasty and filling for something so healthy!

Cooked this for dinner tonight, it was wonderful. Great fresh flavours, added noodles as suggested. Would try it next time with a red chilli to boost the heat.

A great cold busting soup. I added 1 chilli and some fresh ginger. Delicious!

Great dish, but I highly recommend adding fresh lemon-grass to the recipe. Also tofu is a good alternative to chicken.

This is one of my all time favourite recipes! We add a little more fish sauce, a few toasts nuts and seeds (usually cashews and sunflower seeds) some rice noodles and usually a chilli as my other half is chilli mad! It's wonderful, made it again and again

Poached the chicken as the above tip and added babycorn, regular mushrooms, egg drop and shredded cabbage - delicious

I just cooked this for my lunch but instead of chicken & mushroom I used king prawns & mangetout & placed cold rice noodles into the bottom of the bowl prior to pouring hot broth on to heat the noodles , it was devine & very quick & easy . The only thing is my broth wasn't as dark at the 1 pictured but that could be due to not adding mushrooms which would make the broth darker in colour .

Delicious! Used lemon instead of lime, added noodles and went easy on the fish sauce. Next time I'll try adding other veg. Love the chicken know-how tip.

This was very easy to make and really yummy. We used leftover chicken from our roast chicken dinner, we used only one lime, and we added Udon noodles. You'll need a spoon and a fork, or chopsticks!
