Chicken Soup

Halloween trick or treating was particularly tricky this year – it was cold, windy and we had to brave hail to make sure the kids could get their fill for candies. Once home, my friend welcomed us with a warm bowl of soup – the best soup I had in a very long time.. It was such a perfect evening – company of friends, kids happy with all their loot and the icing on the cake was – a recipe for the most awesome soup ever!

Note:  The coconut milk is totally optional. The first time I made this Chicken soup, I did not use it and the soup came out exceptionally well. The second time I tried a slight variation which was using coconut milk – it gave an interesting spin to this recipe; almost tasted like a Thai soup.
