Coconut curry chicken, broccoli and asparagus soup…

Hiya, Internet folks! Tonight I bought an organic rotisserie chicken and didn’t realize until I was home that it was terribly overdone. Figuring a soup was the best way to rehydrate it, I set to work.  

  
I sautéed shallots in olive oil, added the broccoli stems and then proceeded to add every spice I have in the house…seriously. Like a crazy person, I added a little bit of the following to a small bowl: paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, turmeric, coriander, cumin, curry powder, cayenne, cinnamon, salt and … I think that’s it. Oh wait, red pepper flakes! I threw that all in with one can of coconut milk, juice of one lime and a little water and let it cook covered until the veggies were about half done and then dropped in the desert like chicken. And simmered for about 7 more minutes. After serving it up, I topped it with some nice olive oil. 

I’m shocked at how tasty it came out. It could have gone terribly wrong but it came out like a legit curry. Ok, maybe not legit, per se, but pretty damn close. It was spice-full, but not overwhelmingly so. The flavor sort of landed somewhere between Thailand and India. 

Granted, I do have a bit of heartburn after downing two bowls in less time then it took to cook. Whoops. 

The Chief of Clean Floors wanted in on the action!

 
Yours in spice experimentation,
