Had a hard day at work? Why not reinvigorate yourself with a steaming hot bowl of Thai chicken and chilli soup. All you need is:
1 chicken breast
mixed chillies (sliced)
Thai fish sauce
rice noodles (optional).
First of all bring the chicken stock to the boil and put in the chicken breast. Boil for about 10 minutes until the chicken is tender, then remove it and cut into bite sized pieces. Next throw the spring onions, chillies and garlic into the stock and simmer for another 5 minutes. Add a splash of the fish sauce and put the chicken back in and simmer for another 5 minutes. If you want, feel free to lob in some rice noodles at this point to bulk up the dish. Finally, squeeze in some lime juice, a tablespoon of sugar and some salt and pepper to season. Turn off the heat and sprinkle with chopped coriander leaves before serving in a nice big bowl and some crusty bread on the side to mop up. This is a fantastic, easy and healthy dish to restore your insides after a stressful day at the office.
