Thai Green Curry Soup ***

If my recipe has 3 stars *** after the name, then you know it’s a special recipe for those of us trying to lose weight and still enjoy the goodness and flavour of lovely food!
A rich and aromatic soup made from fresh chicken breasts flavoured with lemon grass, lime leaves, galangal (a type of ginger) and coconut milk
2 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
4 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded
2 tablespoons very finely chopped lemongrass stalks
1 extra lemongrass stalk (very finely sliced – longways) (for garnish)
1 teaspoon finely grated galangal
1.25 litres/2 pints chicken stock
The juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves
2 teaspoons nam pla
2 fresh red chilli’s
1 additional red chillie (long one) (for garnish)
4 tablespoons reduced-fat coconut milk
4 spring onions, trimmed and finely sliced
Ground black pepper
Place the chicken, kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass, galangal and chicken stock in a medium pot and bring to the boil. 
Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer gently for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  
Using a slotted spoon, remove the chicken from the saucepan and, using your fingers, tear the flesh into bite-sized shreds. 
Return the chicken to the pot with the lime juice, coriander leaves, nam pla, red chilli, coconut milk and most of the spring onions.
Season well and heat gently for 4-5 minutes until warmed through. 
Serve immediately in warmed bowls garnished with the remaining spring onion, very finely sliced (longways red chillie and lemongrass)
