Chicken Soup with Lemon and Ginger (Kai Tom Khing)














Trans-fat Free, Low Carb, Sugar-Free


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic
12 ounces chicken breasts
4 cups water
4 ounces mushrooms
straw, chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 small green chili peppers
sliced in rings
2 each scallions, spring or green onions
1 pinch ginger
1 x cilantro
for garnish


Straw mushrooms are available canned in the Oriental section of many supermarkets or fresh in Asian groceries. Enoki mushrooms would probably be a good substitute.

Heat the oil in a saucepan or wok and fry the garlic until soft but not brown.

Add the chicken and stir-fry for 5 minutes.

Cool a little.

Add the water and mushrooms.

Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the lemon juice.

Cover, and cook gently for a further 10 minutes.

Add the chilies, spring onions and ginger.

Remove from the heat.

Sprinkle with coriander leaves before serving.
