Directions

Add all broth ingredients to slow cooker. Set to Low and simmer for 3 hours. Be sure to check the broth occasionally to see if you need to add or remove Jalapeno, salt, etc.

Pour broth through strainer into a separate bowl. Discard all herbs caught in strainer. Pour broth back into slow cooker, and turn the temperature to High.

Add baby corn, mushrooms, bean sprouts, coriander and the zest and juice of one lime. Thinly slice the chicken breast and add to the broth, allowing to simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (will look white).

Stir in the coconut milk, mint, basil, cilantro, parsley, and lemon grass. Add salt and pepper to taste. Allow the soup to heat back up for a few minutes while preparing the vermicelli (according to package instructions). Serve immediately.

To serve: Place vermicelli noodles in the bottom of a soup bowl and ladle the chicken soup over top. Garnish with fresh mint, basil and/or cilantro. For a little more heat - add sliced Jalapenos! Enjoy!
