    3/4 lb boneless chicken
    3 tablespoon vegetable oil
    4 cups light coconut milk (2 14oz. cans coconut milk)
    2 cups chicken broth
    2 or 3 tablespoons of minced ginger (an amount equivalent to an 1 inch section of ginger)
    4 tablespoons nam pla (thai fish sauce)
    1/4 cup lime juice
    2 tablespoons sliced scallions
    1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
    Red chili powder (or cayenne pepper) to taste
    1/2 teaspoon turmeric
    1/2 cup straw mushrooms, chopped

Tips

Add more vegetables if you like. Sliced carrots, brocolli florets, and sliced celery work well.


Directions

Cut chicken into thin strips and saute in coconut oil for 2-3 minutes until the chicken turns white.
In a pot, bring coconut milk and broth to a boil. Reduce heat. Add everything except the scallions and fresh cilantro. Simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the chicken is done. Sprinkle with scallions and fresh cilantro and serve steaming hot.
