Chicken Curry Soup

I love the combination of curry and coconut milk. When you add the sweet coconut milk with the curry spice it is a wonderful creation. We used chicken but you could also use shrimp or a combination of both. Add some vegetables and you are now in heaven.  I could eat this stuff every week and I don’t think I would grow tired of it.

1 can chicken, 12.5 oz.
Salt and pepper to taste
1 large potato, pealed and cubed
1 large carrot, pealed and diced
1/2 cup onion, chopped

In a large heavy pot heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and red pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onions and peppers are slightly softened.

Serve the soup over a scoop of hot rice and garnish with more cilantro, if desired.
