Coconut Curry Chicken Soup

The weather is finally cooling down in LA but I still leave the house with a thin long sleeve and start shivering as I walk to my car. I keep forgetting that winter does come by at some point here. But then again it’ll be 90 degrees tomorrow.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t curl up on the couch with this piping hot, soothing coconut curry chicken soup. It’s filled with leftover roasted chicken, rice noodles, tofu, bell pepper and snow peas in a creamy, coconut Thai curry base that just melts your insides with every bite.

You can even add some jalapeño slices for some heat, which I highly recommend. You can start with maybe 2 slices and add more as you can tolerate. I think I started off with a couple of them and then added 5 more slices and it was a bit unbearable. But either way, this here was one of my favorite comforting bowls of soup, and it will definitely warm you up this winter!
