Mama Mary's homemade chicken soup!

Probably the last soup for the season coz Spring here you are....finally! 🌞 Enjoying a bowl of homemade chicken soup inspired by mama 🥰


5-6 cloves (4 diced and 2 smashed)

1/2 inch ginger diced

1 celery diced

1 small Shallot diced

5 carrots (1 diced, 4 rough chopped)

4-5 potatoes rough chopped

2 tbsp tomato paste

Chili flakes

Half a can of coconut milk

Chicken (I used 5 thighs)


Sauté garlic until fragrant. Add onions, ginger, diced celery and diced carrots until softened. Move veggies to the side and add in tomato paste and stir until flavors are released and slightly cooked. Mix in with veggies. Add in chicken and brown skin. Mix for a few minutes with veggies. Add in stock (I added water we had boiling with herb de provence) to the chicken mix. Boil for 5 minutes. Lower heat to medium, add in remaining carrots and potatoes. Cook for 25-30 minutes. In a separate pan sautè smashed garlic with chilli flakes. Add to soup mix. Remove soup from heat & add in coconut milk. Enjoy! 😊
