Easy Khmer Chicken Soup

Easy Khmer Chicken Soup

This is very simple chicken soup you can cut up chicken or leg or wing up to you. You have to adjust the water and chicken. It is good for cold season.

5 to 6 cups of water (do adjust water to your chicken)
1 stalk of lemongrass cut in half and bruises in the back of the big knife
3 to 4 kaffir lime leaves torn to pieces
3 cloves of garlic smash then mince
1 piece of galangal bruises
1 pkg of wonton soup mix (this is optional but makes soup taste good)
Fish sauce or salt and MSG to flavor your soup

Herbs to garnish the bowl,

Saw tooth coriander
Or Thai basil
Green onion
Lime juice
Thinly slice cucumber (this is optional but it is good)
Fish sauce if needed
Minced Chilies to go with fish sauce
Often I made fish sauce, chilies and lime juice in a small bowl when I serve

In a pot add lemongrass, kaffir lime, garlic, and galangal water bring it to a boil for 2 minutes
Then add chicken part to it cook until the chicken is done depending on what part of chicken you use
Now add fish sauce, wonton soup, salt or MSG to the soup according to your taste.
Turn the heat off when chicken is cooked

When ready to serve add herbs and lime juice, sliced cucumber and serve hot with rice,
