Coconut-Curry Noodle Soup from Martha Stewart Living

Coconut-Curry Noodle Soup

I found this most delicious recipe in this months Martha Stewart Living Magazine.  I've made a couple of changes based on my pantry and will include my changes in the recipe.

A steamy hot bowl of this fragrant soup will be certain to warm you to the bone

10 ounces Chinese wheat noodles or rice noodles ( I used Thai rice noodles)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon Thai yellow curry paste (I mixed equal parts Tikka Masala, coriander lemon base and hot curry paste, cumin and chili base)
4 cups chicken stock (I used 2-1/2 tablespoons chicken base and 4 cups water)
1 lemon

  •  Boil noodles according to manufacturer's instructions.  Drain and rinse under cold water. Toss with 1teaspoon oil.
  • Heat remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Cook curry paste until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.  Whisk in stock,.  Raise heat, and bring to a boil.
  • Cut lemon in half, and squeeze 1 half into saucepan. Divide noodles into 4 bowls.  Garnish with basil or mint and lemon wedges.
Lemon Pepper Chicken:
4 large chicken breast, pounded to 1/2 inch thickness, to promote even cooking time
4 Serrano chili peppers
3 garlic cloves
1 lemon
2 tablespoon vegetable or peanut oil
salt and pepper to taste


  • Slice Serrano chilies and garlic thinly
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a heavy bottom skillet on medium heat, add half of the chilies and garlic, saute for about 30 seconds, add 2 seasoned chicken breast and saute until juices run clear,
  • cut lemon in half and squeeze juice from one half over cooked breast, cook additional 30 seconds, remove from pan and let rest until ready to serve
  •  repeat with 2 remaining chicken breast, and allow chicken to rest 5 minutes before slicing thinly. Garnish and serve
