Recipe: Silly Goose Coconut Curry Soup

Updated: Apr 24

If you're looking for a rich, velvety bowl of delicious, look no further! Our take on this Thai red curry style coconut soup is light enough for lunch but hearty enough to keep you full all day. Its also so easy to convert to a delicious full dinner meal on a bed of rice (see Tips from your Top Goose below).

Without further ado...

Silly Goose Coconut Curry Soup

Here's what you need:

  • 3 large chicken breasts, sliced thinly in short strips

  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced thinly in short strips

  • 1 large yellow onion, diced or cut in thin strips

  • 5c chicken broth

  • 1 can coconut milk

  • 1/2c thinly sliced mushrooms

  • 4tbsp minced garlic

  • 3tbsp red curry paste

  • 2tbsp olive oil

  • 1tbsp freshly grated ginger (can sub ginger paste if needed but fresh is preferred)

  • 1/2tbsp fish sauce

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Optional 1tbsp brown sugar

  • Optional 1-2tbsp lime juice

Optional garnishes:

  • freshly chopped Thai basil

  • freshly chopped cilantro


Heat olive oil in dutch oven. Add sliced chicken over medium heat. Add salt and pepper and lightly brown (est. 2-3m). Set chicken aside. Add diced onion to pot, stirring through oil. After 1-2m add garlic and red pepper and mushroom slices. Cook until tender, stirring occasionally (est. 4-5m).

Stir in red curry paste. Add freshly grated ginger and stir well. Add 1 cup broth and cook for several minutes. Stir in remainder of broth and coconut milk and cook on low for 20m to develop flavors.

Stir in chicken, raise heat to high and cook for about 10 minutes. Lower heat and add fish sauce and brown sugar (if adding - test your flavor first).

Remove from heat. If adding, garnish with basil or cilantro and lime juice (I prefer it without for this recipe but it does give nice flavor).


Tips from your Top Goose

  • This recipe is SO good y'all - it will be delicious regardless but this is one that the FRESH ingredients make a difference. I make it with homemade broth and all freshly chopped and grated ingredients.

  • Same with time - if you need a quick meal, you can skip the additional 20m of cooking. This time is used for flavors to really develop but its still yummy made quick. LEFTOVERS are so good.

  • Want a fun spin? Double the chicken, onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms for a thicker result and spoon a large ladle over a bowl of rice for a heartier dinner option. This is also a great way to make this recipe last longer! Alternatively you can add 2 cups of rice IN the soup but I prefer to make the rice separate then pour the soup over it.
