  • 2 stalks fresh  lemongrass
  • 1 slice peeled fresh  ginger root
  • 4 cilantro stems 
  • 6 kaffir lime leaf*
  • 1 carton Campbell's® 30% Less Sodium Ready To Use Thai Chicken Broth
  • 1 lb (454 g) boneless, skinless chicken thigh, chopped 
  • 8 oz (226 g) shiitake  mushrooms
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) fish sauce
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) sugar


  1. Using the back of a knife, lightly smash lemongrass and ginger; cut lemongrass into 4” pieces. Bring lemongrass, ginger, cilantro stems, lime leaves, and broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until flavours are melded, 8–10 minutes. Strain broth into clean saucepan; discard solids.
  2. Add chicken and return to a boil. Reduce heat, add mushrooms, and simmer, skimming occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and mushrooms are soft, about 15 minutes. Mix in coconut milk, fish sauce and sugar.
  3. Divide soup among bowls. Serve with cilantro, Thai basil and lime wedges.

Recipe tips

  • Serve over white rice for a heartier, more authentic dish.
