Default coconut chicken soup

I just posted this in a different thread, but I'll put it here too.


diced raw chicken, or chicken leftovers
basil (fresh or dried)
ginger root, sliced
lemon (juice and zest)
onion, chopped
garlic, crushed
1 quart chicken stock
1 can coconut milk
bay leaf
whole cloves
cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
fat (butter+olive oil, coconut oil, lard, etc)

1. fry diced chicken breast in your fat of choice with salt, pepper, basil, sliced ginger, and lemon zest. set aside
2. meanwhile, saute a chopped onion along with some more sliced ginger and a couple of cloves of crushed garlic for 3-5 min
3. add a quart of chicken stock and a can of coconut milk to the onions. also toss in a bay leaf, some whole cloves if you've got em, and some cayenne pepper and simmer for 20 min
4. add the chicken and a squeeze of lemon juice and warm through. you could also add some fresh basil at this point...all I had was dried, bleah

Might be interesting to add lemongrass, or some other veggies. This was an "ack, all I have left in the fridge is an onion!" soup, haha.
