Coconut Soup With Silkened Chicken & Snow Peas



While  a genuine Thai, Indonesian, Indian or any other “genuine” coconut soup can be wonderful if properly prepared, sometimes it is impractical to go to the full length of dozens of ingredients just to have a quick, flavorful and economic soup. If you find yourself in such a situation, you might want to try this simple preparation, which can be enjoyed after no more than fifteen minutes from start to finish. Of course, I am all for authentic recipes and I believe we must make an effort to make sure that under normal circumstances and whenever practical, we don’t make unnecessary short cuts because we are lazy.  But sometimes, if you want something tasty and can’t do the big production for whatever reason ………., well, I am sure you’ve got the point 🙂



Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !

  1. Hans,

    I too am a retired chef that just can’t get away from our industry.  I’m lucky I have a son that is moving up the ladder and loves the industry as well.  He could be very good one day.  I’m a little worried that I have not seen new postings lately.  I hope this note finds you in good health and also hope to see you continue. 

    I tried to do the same thing you are doing and did not get as much response as I had hoped so I stopped.  My thought was to give some “new” menu items to people that had never been introduced to variations of standard fare that would give them the motivation to try new items.  I worked out costs as well as shopping lists but did not make an impact.  I wish you good luck and hope to see more of your information.
