Thai Chicken and Sweet Potato Soup

Updated: Dec 9, 2018

Making this Thai Chicken and Sweet Potato Soup on a weeknight is speedy when you take smart shortcuts. Yes, you could buy a laundry list of hard-to-find ingredients to build amazing flavor in this soup, or you could buy a jar of concentrated red curry paste which delivers authentic flavor in paste form.


3 scallions, chopped, white and green parts separated

Cilantro, 6 tablespoons minced

Basil, 3 tablespoons, chiffonade

1 sweet potato, peeled, quartered and sliced thin

2 chicken breasts, split lengthwise and sliced thin (about 1.5 pounds)

1 tablespoon oil (vegetable, canola, or olive)

2 tablespoons red curry paste

4 cups chicken broth (I like water mixed with Better than Bouillon or homemade)
