Thai Chicken Coconut Soup

Thai Chicken Coconut Soup
This simple Thai soup provides a wonderful balance of spicy, salty, sweet and sour in a creamy broth made of light coconut milk, chicken stock, lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves and many traditional Thai flavors. Filling so many requirements for this time of year of being healthy, easy, quick and very satisfying!
This soup probably is not traditional and is only my version of one of our favorite Thai soups.
I added baby kale to this soup but feel free to use chopped kale or any other mild leafy greens you might have in the fridge.
