Thai Coconut and Chicken Curry Soup

We love Thai Coconut Curry Soup and have been on the hunt for the perfect recipe. Enter Derek Bissonette's recipe from his cookbook Soup: The Ultimate Book of Soups and Stews. We hadn't even finished our bowls before we started talking about making it again. Easy enough for weeknights, but flavorful and impressive enough for a dinner party. Our favorite new way to use our Thai Seasoning!
