  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon lemongrass paste

  • 3 cups cooked chicken shredded (I used rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 14 ounce can coconut milk
  • cherry tomatoes halved, cilantro, and hot sauce for garnish


  • Heat chicken stock, cilantro, lemongrass, lime juice, salt, serrano, and ginger in a 6 quart dutch oven or large stock pot over medium high heat. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer, cooking for 15 minutes
  • Add mushrooms and chicken, stirring to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes until chicken is fully heated.
  • Stir in coconut milk and brown sugar, stirring until everything is fully combined and smooth.
