I made this soup today. Surprisingly it came out really well. I was a lil apprehensive about the coconut milk, but it suited beautifully! I used niblets instead of chicken breast n boiled it in the step where the recipe says add chicken stock (along with the stock). I thought itd give a better flavour which it did. After it was boiled n cooked,I took them out of the soup,added the coconut milk, chopped the chicken into chunky pieces n added it back in. Also the soup was a little runnier than my liking at the end, so I added a bit of corn flour just to thicken it up. Overall, a very nice soup with a diff twist on the normal chicken soup. Defo will b making this again.:)
