To make Thai chicken soup, thinly slice 1 onion, and saute it in a large pot with 1 tablespoon of heated oil over medium-high heat. Add 2 cloves of minced garlic and 2 tablespoons of green curry paste; cook for one to two minutes, stirring frequently. Pour in 6 cups of low-sodium chicken broth, one 15-ounce can of coconut milk and 1 tablespoon of fish sauce. Cover the pot, and bring it to a boil.
Thinly slice 2 red peppers, break 4 ounces of thin rice noodles, and add them to the pot. Simmer, uncovered, for about three minutes. Thinly slice 2 small boneless chicken breasts crosswise, and add it to the pot. Simmer for about another three minutes, until the chicken is just cooked. Stir in 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice and 1 cup of chopped cilantro.
For the chicken salad with peanuts and lime, shred 2 halves of a cooked chicken breast with a fork. Pour 4 cups of chopped romaine lettuce into a large bowl, and add the chicken, 1 cup each of diced cucumber and diced tomato, and 1/2 cup chopped green onions. Make the sauce by whisking together 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice and 2 teaspoons of sesame oil. Add it to the salad, and top with 1/4 cup peanuts.Learn more about Cooking
