Ingredients for chicken green curry soup

  • Coconut oil – This is the fat of choice for our soup that will impart some coconut flavor.
  • Onions and garlic – Classic additions that will bring an earthiness to our soup.
  • Bell peppers – I’ve chosen red and yellow, but feel free to use your favorite varieties.
  • Green curry paste – This can be found easily in the international foods aisle of the grocery store!
  • Fresh ginger – Fresh is best! It will give us a sweet and spicy flavor.
  • Lemongrass paste – Lemongrass is sweet and fragrant. 
  • Fish sauce – Fish sauce will add a layer of umami to our soup.
  • Brown sugar – Brown sugar adds a slight sweetness. 
  • Chicken stock – Feel free to use homemade or store-bought varieties.  
  • Coconut milk –  Coconut milk is smooth and sweet, and will give a nice coconut flavor to our soup.
  • Lime juice – Lime juice is bright and will bring freshness and enhance the flavors of the soup. 
  • Cooked chicken – Take help from the grocery store with a delicious rotisserie chicken found in the deli section!
  • Cooked noodles – Feel free to use whatever cooked Asian rice noodles or even spaghetti noodles for this soup. Cooked ramen noodles would work well here too!

For topping:

  •  Cilantro – Cilantro is herbaceous, bold, and slightly minty.
  • Green onions – Green onions will give a subtle onion flavor on top.
  • Sriracha – Sriracha adds a sweet and spicy finish to our soup.

What is green curry paste? 

Green curry paste is an aromatic condiment that is full of flavor!

It’s usually a combination of ground-up green chiles, shrimp paste, onions, garlic, lemongrass, galangal, and coriander root. 

It’s easily found in most major grocery stores in the international foods aisle, online, and at Asian grocery stores.

You can find my favorite green curry paste at Asian grocery stores or even on Amazon!

What to serve?

This chicken green curry soup is delicious and served over noodles.

However, if you’re not in the mood for noodles you can easily turn this noodle soup into a chicken and rice soup with the addition of jasmine rice.

Best noodles to use

I like to make my life a million times easier by buying precooked Asian-style noodles right in my grocery store! Here are a few different options to help you narrow down what will work for you and your family:

Make ahead

You can make this chicken green curry soup and freeze it in batches for up to 3 months, so whenever you’re craving a comforting soup, it’ll be ready for you!

Cook as directed (omitting the rice noodles) cool to room temp, and store in freezer-safe containers.

To heat from frozen, place the frozen chicken green curry soup container in the refrigerator overnight to thaw, and then heat on the stove in a pot until boiling.
