Thai-Style Chicken Detox Soup Recipe

Now I don't know about you, but when I've had a pretty heavy weekend filled with stodgy food and lots of drink, I find myself craving something lighter. After a massive BBQ and a family meal last weekend I found myself dreading dinner on Monday. I remembered a soup I had made last winter when I was feeling a bit grotty and decided to tweak the recipe a little, eventually coming up with this bad boy. It's super easy and quick to make, perfect for after an indulgent few days. 

(serves 1)
- 1 tsp Coconut Oil
- 136g Chicken Breast
- 1 Stick of Lemongrass
- 1 tsp Chillies
(Optional: I like my soup with a kick, you may want to use less or omit completely!)
- 1 tsp Chopped Ginger
- 1 Vegetable Stock Cube
- 1 tbsp Reduced Salt Soy Sauce
- 1 Cup Spring Onions
- 90g Babycorn
- 70g Mangetout
- 1/2 Lime
- Sprinkling of Coriander 

(If you're feeling extra peckish you can always add some rice noodles!)


Begin by adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to a hot pan and wait for it to melt. I can't get enough of the stuff at the moment, it's so versatile!

Add your chicken and cook until it's a golden brown.
Whilst you're waiting for the chicken, make up the stock using 400ml of boiling water and add a tbsp of soy sauce.
Add around 100ml of the stock to the saucepan along with the lemongrass, chillies, ginger and spring onion. Give it a little stir to combine the flavours before covering with a lid and leaving to cook for 3 minutes.
Now you can add the rest of the stock and the mangetout! Stir again and cover for a further 6 minutes. 

Turn off the heat and squeeze the juice from the lime into the soup, stir it once more before serving and garnish with some coriander.

It really is that easy!
