Easy Thai Chicken and Vegetable Soup Recipe

This time of year I’m looking for something easy and tasty to make up for meals. In this post I share a family favorite: Easy Thai Chicken and Vegetable Soup Recipe.

Easy Thai Chicken and Vegetable Soup Recipe

I first came across these new flavor infused broths this past winter. They are a great way to create homemade meals with many of the fresh veggies I grow or get from farmers market quick and easy.  The recipe I’ve changed to fit my families approval was taken from the Swanson Thai Chicken Vegetable Soup Broth.  I like to make the chicken optional because the veggies taste amazing on their own in the broth/ coconut milk soup.

Easy Thai Chicken and Vegetable Soup Recipe


  •  1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup of carrots - matchstick-thin strips (organic)
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch matchstick-thin strips (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 32 ounces (1 carton) Swanson® Thai Ginger Flavor Infused Broth
  • ** Optional - 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 14 ounces (1 can) unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 lime squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves


  1. 1 . Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the carrot and pepper and cook for 5 minutes or until tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the mushrooms, if desired.
  2. 2 . Add the broth to the saucepan and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low.
  3. 3 . Stir in the coconut milk and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.  Stir in the lime juice and cilantro just before serving.

Note: If I can’t find this Thai chicken broth in the years to come I am fresh out to luck. (sad)  It tastes so amazing in soups.

This is one of my favorite soups to make because of the vegetables.  How can you not love how bright and beautiful these vegetables are?


You can get creative and use mushrooms from the Asian market.  I have even used the Morel mushrooms we find in our woods here in NW Ohio.  Be careful to check and make sure the mushrooms you find outdoors are edible and haven’t been sprayed with anything.  Mushrooms Guide can be found here!

It is so much fun to take photos while you cook.  I believe I used my Nikon Digital for these images in 2015.  Today I do most of my kitchen photography and videos from my iPhone.
I’d love to hear what you use to save the moment in the kitchen.

Just so you know… I’m a fan of swanson broth products not a paid spokesperson. I purchased all ingredients locally and spun the recipe to my own liking!
