What is Tom Kha Gai? It is a spicy and sour Thai soup, with coconut milk and chicken being the main ingredients. You can also make this delicious soup without the chicken or you can use seafood, like shrimp.


4 chicken tenders cubed and cooked – Season the chicken to taste. I use black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.

3 cups chicken broth

1 ½ cups coconut milk

½ tsp ginger or 1 tsp freshly grated ginger

1 tbsp ground coriander seed

sea salt – to taste

1 tbsp Parsley flakes


1. Cut and season your chicken to taste, then cook chicken.

2. In a large cooking pot, get the chicken broth to boil; if clumps form then scoop them off. Once the broth begins to boil, slowly add the coconut milk and stir to not let the coconut burn or turn to clumps.

3. Let simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes, making sure to stir occasionally.

Dinner is served: Tom Kha Gai!
