Thai-Style Coconut Chicken Soup

Prep: 30 minutes
Cook: 5 to 6 hours (on low) or 2 1/2 to 3 hours (on high)
Makes: 6 servings

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts or thighs

4 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

1 cup bias-sliced carrots (2 medium)

1 cup chopped onion (1 large)

2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

3 garlic cloves, minced

15-ounce can unsweetened light coconut milk

2 medium red, yellow, or green bell peppers, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

2 6-ounce jars button mushrooms, drained

1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro

1/3 cup chopped roasted peanuts (optional)

Cut chicken into 3/4-inch pieces and place in a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker. Add broth, carrots, onion, ginger, lemon peel, crushed red pepper, and garlic, and stir.

This was good...I didn't discard the cooking liquid(I assume it says to discard because it is high calorie?) used it on mashed potatoes and a little on the meat. It had a bit of spice to it but I will probably make it a tad spicer next time.

This was good but the meat was a little dry. I am going to add a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies next time.
