Today was one of those days where I worked nonstop and didn’t even stop to think about what I was making for dinner.  6 o’clock came quick and it was scramble time to figure out what to put on the table for the hungry troops.  Pizza was up first, but I didn’t have time to make my quick dough so that was quickly scrapped.  Then the Hubs tossed out Tortilla Soup but I wasn’t in the Mexican frame of mind after 6 days of eating Mexican in Austin.  Then it hit me – what about a creamy chicken soup with Thai flavors?  Mmm, that sounded just right.

This is a super fast recipe for a creamy and Thai inspired chicken chowder.  It’s on the table in less than 30 minutes and it will have you going back for seconds – if there are any.

so easy to make and flavorful for only being a 20 minute cook time.

I’ve never had green curry paste before. Is it spicy?

FarmgirlGourmet June 18, 2013 - 9:07 pm

It’s not spicy. Red curry tends to be spicier because of the addition of chiles. But green isn’t at all.

Awesome, thank you!

Such a wonderful soup Heather. I often need a quick last minute recipe and these days it’s dark and raining outside so we crave more for soups. I can’t wait to try your recipe, I pretty much have all ingredients at home. =) Thanks for sharing and I wish you a wonderful weekend!
