Fast & Easy Dinner: Coconut Lime Chicken Soup

This fragrant and scrumptious recipe is a cinch to throw together, making it the perfect midweek pick-me-up. It combines the exotic freshness of Thai cuisine with the comforting classic, chicken soup.

Mikeee, you can just buy a jar of "Thai seasoning" in your spice aisle. Contains red pepper and a few other things. Made this on Monday and it really was delicious and fast--the lime juice and cilantro are necessary! Served it with some whole wheat naan.
