Easy Tom Kha Thai Coconut Soup

50 mins (prep 20, cooking 30)
16 ingredients
4-6 servings
I know, I know, it's not authentic and it doesn't contain all the ingredients in the Thai name. But for poor, deprived college-town students like me, this is pretty close to what you can find at Thai restaurants. I'll eat it for dinner with some Thai tea (though I'm usually too lazy to make it), though it's not traditionally meant to be served as its own course. You could substitute shrimp or tofu for the chicken, just skip the velveting preparation. I velvet the chicken so it doesn't get tough in the soup, but you don't have to. If you don't, just sauté the chicken in some oil until it turns white and then cook it until it's done in the simmering soup.
