THAI COCONUT CHICKEN SOUP RECIPE

Sure, there are some simple bisques that I am fond of, but what I enjoy are soups that have elements of heat, savoriness, and a subtle sweetness all at the same time. There are few soups in my opinion that can accomplish all of those, however, this Thai Coconut Chicken Soup is one that can.
