Curried Squash & Chicken Soup

October 27, 2015

This was a quick and easy one from one of my go to cook books, Eating Well Serves Two. Normally their recipes are ample for two, but this one I would probably double next time. Perhaps because it was a soup it wasn’t meant to be the main dish. I boosted it up a bit and served it over a bed of rice. Other good additions would be potatoes, basil, or bean sprouts. I also thought it could use a bit more spice.

Curried Squash & Chicken Soup

Difficulty: Easy
Prep Time: 15 min

INGREDIENTS:

1, 10 ounce package frozen pureed winter squash
1/2 cup “lite” coconut milk
1/2 cup water
8 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, thinly sliced

2 tsp lime juice
2 tsp brown sugar
