Coconut Curry Chicken Soup

You guys know I’m all about easy. And healthy. And GOOD. And this dish achieves it all. My goal is to make this a one-pot dish (if you figure out a good way to cook the noodles into the soup, let me know!), but I’d say two pot isn’t bad. Plus using this simple curry flavor with the paste and the simple protein with the rotisserie chicken, you really can’t beat this.

You could easily swap chicken for shrimp or tofu. You could also swap red curry paste for yellow for a milder flavor. The one thing you CANNOT swap is the full-fat coconut milk. I’m telling you guys. I’ve played around with it a million times and it’s sadly just not as good! This still ends up being a super low calorie soup, so don’t stress my little monkeys.

Got this recipe inspo from @TheColorfulKitchen and modified it to my liking (and ease).
