Thai Chicken & Coconut Soup

While travelling around Thailand (here is the post from our trip) we spent one day in a cooking class! It was loads of delicious fun! And we learned a lot! :)

Within 12 different recipes we have tried with F. I was the most impressed with the super simple, spicy coconut soup. :)

3. Add chicken and wait until it is cooked. You will known it is cooked when it will be easy to cut it in half with a spoon.

4. Cut in 4 the onion and the tomatoes and add them to the pot. Add also mushrooms. Simmer until the tomato skin start to go off (around 5min).
