Chicken Soup


This is a very easy and a yummy chicken soup cooked in coconut water. I added some green papaya, but you can add any other veggies of your choice. The lemon grass and kaffir lime leaves gives this soup a bit of a citrus aroma which is very refreshing. This healthy soup is just perfect to warm up on a wintry night. It is a wholesome meal in itself that can be enjoyed as a light dinner too. If preferred you can pair it with some cooked rice for a soul satisfying meal.
