Thai Curry Coconut Chicken Soup

This Thai Curry Coconut Chicken Soup is a warmly spiced, protein-packed soup with a ton of crisp veggies. The spice is offset by the creaminess of the coconut. Gluten Free!

Now that it’s officially soup and chili season, allow me to warn you that the blog will be completely hijacked by recipes for warm, comforting bowls of goodness.

How about a crock pot version? This Thai Chicken Curry is slow-cooked to perfection.

I was in the mood for something with a kick and decided to go with a Thai curry inspired chicken soup, made uber creamy-like with coconut milk. For the heat, I picked up a jar of red curry paste at Fortino’s.

I had used this spice blend before in an Asian beef skewer dish I used to make. Besides great flavour, I also like it’s short, pronounceable ingredient list.

There was no leftover cooked chicken in the fridge so the first thing I needed to do was get the chicken started. I used the red curry paste to marinate my chicken before cooking it to add more oopmh.

I popped this in the fridge in the AM and then popped it in the oven for dinner time to cook while I prepped the rest of the meal.


Into my soup pot I combined a heaping tablespoon of the red curry paste with coconut milk.

I wouldn’t recommend using a low fat version of coconut milk. What makes this soup extra special is the great balance of spice and smoooooth and to keep the smoooooth you need the creaminess of the coconut milk.

I loved the colour that this combination made. An awesome pinkish hue. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Then I added in my peppers. I wanted these to kind of remain crisp tender in this soup.

My end goal is to have a ‘use your teeth’ kind of soup so I didn’t want the veggies to be soft.

After the veggies have cooked through and have started to relax,

I added in my chickpeas and chicken.

Once all of the ingredients have soaked up all the essence of the spicy, creamy broth, you are ready to rock!

The last step is to garnish with the freshly cut green onions. The addition of the green added great colour and depth of flavour. I was so happy with this soup.

  1. This chili is great for freezing in individual serving containers and then heating in the microwave for a nice hot lunch.
    So, try to get involved with the habit of always
    transporting certain gluten-free snacks around along with you anywhere you go,
    and departing them within the vehicle, or perhaps in your bag,
    as well as at the desk at the office, to
    ensure that if you achieve just a little hungry, you are able to eat something you realize that
    the body will have the ability to tolerate. For those
    who have cardiac and vascular issues, gluten in sensitive persons can trigger
    heart attacks, strokes, arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, high
    blood pressure, and other related issues.
