Thai Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe

Soup Recipes

You might think that a Thai chicken noodle soup is like many Thai soups – rich, intensely flavored with a curry paste and of course, super spicy. Not so! I promise you there’s more to Thai soups than what you’ll find in western Thai restaurants.

For example, this Thai chicken noodle soup is actually not that different from a chicken noodle soup your mother or grandmother might make.  The major difference is the broth which is simmered with a simple paste of garlic, black pepper and cilantro stems as well as the triple gem of Thai aromatics – lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime leaves.

This combination makes for one of the most soul-soothing broths I’ve ever tasted.  Seriously, there is just SO. MUCH. FLAVOR. I’d betcha you’ll love this Thai chicken noodle soup even more than your grandmother’s version. Don’t take offense to that. I know people get very defensive when it comes to their grandmother’s cooking. I’m sure your grandmother is a great cook. Just make this and get back to me.

And remember, it’s NOT spicy. Of course, if you like spicy you could totally add a fresh Thai bird’s eye chile or two to the paste.  For a milder kick you could just add some roasted chile powder at the end.

Finally, my new book, The Thai Soup Secret is now available, which of course, includes this recipe for a Thai chicken noodle soup. Most of the recipes are broth-based and NOT spicy.
