      Title: Tom kha gai (chicken coconut soup)
 Categories: Thai, Chicken
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      2 c  Coconut milk
      6    Thin slices young galangal
      2    Stalks lemon grass,
           ; lower third portion only,
           ; cut into 1" piece, crushed
      5    Fresh kaffir lime leaves
      8 oz Boned chicken breast, sliced
      5 tb Fish sauce (nam pla)
      2 tb Sugar
    1/2 c  Lime juice
      1 ts Black chili paste
    1/4 c  Cilantro/coriander leaves
           ; torn
      5    Green Thai chili peppers,
           ; crushed
 
  A rich, aromatic dinner soup, which is enjoyed throughout the meal.
  Whenever possible, fresh kaffir lime leaves should be used, and their
  flavor and aroma is increased when they are torn instead of cut with a
  knife.  Young galangal is pale yellow, with firm unwrinkled pink
  shoots. Fresh young ginger can be substituted if necessary, but the
  flavor will not be quite the same.
  
  Combine half the coconut milk with the galangal, lemon grass and lime
  leaves in a large saucepan and heat to boiling.  Add the chicken, fish
  sauce and sugar.
  
  Simmer for about 4 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked .  Add the
  remaining coconut milk to the saucepan and heat just to boiling.
  
  Place the lime juice and chili past in a serving bowl, then pour the
  soup into the serving bowl.
  
  Garnish with the torn cilantro leaves and crushed chili peppers, and
  serve.
