  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 13.5 oz unsweetened coconut milk
  • 64 oz chicken stock
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped


  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a soup pot or Dutch oven. Sear the chicken on all sides until golden brown. Transfer the chicken to a plate for later use.
  2. Add in the onion, red bell pepper and garlic and sauté for a couple minutes. Add in the red curry paste, cayenne and salt and stir to combine.
  3. Stir in the coconut milk. Pour in the chicken stock and bring to a low boil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken back into the soup and reduce the heat to low. Add in the mushrooms.
  4. Allow the soup to simmer on low heat for 25-30 minutes, or until the soup has reduced slightly and the chicken is tender. Stir in the cilantro and green onion. Serve the soup over a scoop of white rice for the ultimate bowl of soup and enjoy!
