Curried Coconut Chicken Soup


3 – 4 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into cubes

1teaspoon pure sesame oil

1 teaspoon organic, unrefined coconut oil

1 green onion, white and pale green portion, thinly sliced

1 cup low or no sodium all-natural chicken stock

1/4 cup pure coconut milk (full fat)

1 small cucumber, thinly sliced

2 fresh basil leaves, torn

Lime wedge and fresh cilantro, garnish, optional


Toss chicken with sesame oil and cook in a medium saucepan over high heat until nearly cooked through, about 7 minutes, stirring as the chicken cooks to evenly brown all sides.

Leave chicken in saucepan and reduce heat to medium.

Add coconut oil, green onion, garlic and curry powder; cook, stirring, 2 minutes.

Add stock and coconut milk; increase heat to bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover, simmering 15 minutes.

Pour soup into a serving bowl, add cucumber, basil and a squeeze of lime. Serve immediately.

A note from Dr. Perlmutter:

I receive many questions from people who prefer to buy their bone broth. And as a buyer of bone broth myself, I certainly understand how difficult it is to find a bone broth that does not contain questionable ingredients and maximizes nutrient density.

To provide an option for those people, I partnered with Kettle & Fire, which is my go-to company for healthy bone broths and soups. And as a member of our community, they are offering up to 25% off their Coconut Curry Lime Bone Broth that is a delicious, time-saving option for the recipe above through this link.

So if you are looking for high-quality bone broths or soups, try them out and let me know what you think!
