Usually when I think Asian food, I don’t think “comfort” food. But when I think Thai Coconut Chicken Wild Rice Soup, I think warm, hearty, creamy chicken and rice soup with layers of Asian flavors comfort food. And all you have to do is add our ingredients to the slow cooker! Although it might seem obvious “all you do is add our ingredients to the slow cooker,” I don’t want you to shy away from making this soup and cheat yourself out of palate pleasing bliss when you see the list of ingredients. Its long, but the few extra touches take this soup from good to great, and all you do is add our ingredients to the slow cooker.
This Thai Coconut Chicken and Rice Soup is different than a lot of Thai Soups in that I based it off my Coconut Pumpkin Chicken Curry, and loaded it with plenty of veggies for more of a chicken, vegetable and rice soup. You can swap out the veggies for your favs, but I went with zucchini, sweet potatoes, and squash. I also threw in a tart Granny Smith Apple which is common in Captain Curry Chicken and adds a subtle tartness that, along with a splash of lime juice, balances the nutty coconut with a little fresh, bright acidity. Thai food is all about the balance of acidity, sweet and salty – and this soup has it in spades.
This cast of characters gets seasoned with red curry paste, ginger, garlic, basil and cumin and then smothered in a bath of coconut milk and chicken broth to soak in until the veggies and rice are tender. Then stir in some cornstarch to slightly thicken and nutty peanut butter and the coconut broth becomes luscious, flavor bursting red curry peanut butter coconut broth that perfectly cocoons the veggies, chicken and rice.
So grab your mixing bowl and serving spoon. Its comforting Slow Cooker Thai Chicken and Rice Soup time!
