Tom Kha Kai (Thai Coconut Chicken Soup)
---------------------------------------
4 cubed skinless boneless chicken breast halves
2 cups coconut milk (canned, in the Oriental foods section)
1 teaspoon Laos powder (from an Oriental grocery)
2 chopped green onions
4 chopped serrano chiles
2 teaspoons powdered lemon grass (from an Oriental grocery; or use fresh
lemon grass)
1 juiced lime

Bring 1 cup coconut milk to boil. Add chicken, lemon grass, and Laos. Cover
and simmer until chicken is tender.**  Add remaining 1 cup coconut milk,
green onions and chilis. DO NOT BOIL. Stir in lime juice just before
serving. **Or, cook chicken with coconut milk and seasonings in the
microwave at about 50% power for 20 minutes. Makes the broth especially
rich!
