Thai chicken vegetable soup filled with tender chicken and plenty of veggies. This one-pot warming soup is creamy and hearty, perfect for this time of the year.

make this Thai soup into a meal

To make this Thai chicken vegetable soup a hearty weeknight meal, ladle the hot soup over Jasmine or sticky rice or rice noodles.

If you are watching your carbs, add some zoodles. Zoodles are zucchini noodles and healthy replacements for rice or rice noodles. By adding zoodles, you will also increase the number of veggies making the soup more nutritious.

The easy way to make zoodles is with a spiralizer. You can also make them with a vegetable peeler using the julienne blade. Many supermarkets carry zoodles all ready to go. 

Thai chicken vegetable soup recipe notes

Thai chicken vegetable soup in a bowl with chop sticks


I love this soup recipe because once you prepare the veggies, there is nothing else to do. Just put everything in the instant pot and cook for eight minutes under high pressure.

Then to finish the soup, stir in coconut milk, lime juice, freshly grated garlic, fresh cilantro and sliced green onions and reheat just before serving. By adding the fresh herbs and garlic at the end, you will add tremendous flavour to the Thai soup.

This naturally gluten-free soup is one of those dishes when you are looking for a satisfying meal and need something on the table fast. 

the flavours of Thai cuisine

Thai cuisine includes salty, sweet, sour and spicy all in one dish. Most Thai dishes are deliciously spiced, aromatic, and naturally gluten-free.
This soup comes from the southern part of Thailand. Many of their dishes are made with coconut milk in the southern region and are most popular in Thailand. Thai soups are considered healthy because they are made with garlic, ginger, lemongrass, veggies, herbs and lean meats.
