Coconut Chicken Stirfry Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #soup #recipe

I love a good Thai soup, but it’s difficult to find all the authentic Thai ingredients to make it … this soup has an exotic Thai taste, with ingredients that are pretty accessible to us in the middle US.

I also like to transform my leftovers into new creations, so I took my leftover stirfry (because I got a little carried away and made enough for four when I was just cooking for me) and made it into a bright, sunshiny soup.

Coconut Chicken Stirfry Soup

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 19 minutes

Yield: About 1 1/2 quarts of soup

Coconut Chicken Stirfry Soup


  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups cooked, cubed chicken breast
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger root, peeled & chopped
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can light coconut milk
  • 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 cups leftover vegetable stirfry (recipe here)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the chicken, ginger, chicken broth, coconut milk, honey, turmeric and cayenne over medium heat to boiling.
  2. Stir in the stirfry and cook for a few more minutes until everything is hot.
  3. Serve hot with cilantro for garnish.
