  1. So, I found this recipe maybe a year ago and should have commented sooner. This immediately became one of our family favorites, so much so that my husband requests it whenever we have something to celebrate. He says it tastes like ‘home’ now (we are not from Thailand, he just has super good memories with this soup). I like that it is super quick to throw together if you have everything in your kitchen/pantry. I sometimes add shrimp instead of chicken, and usually throw some bok choi in just for a little extra greens. Thank you so much for posting this!!
