chicken-satay-soup14

A few days a week, I take my laptop and set up shop at the coffee shop down the road. Grounded Coffee has the best soup. Soup is my favorite thing to eat, and their soup never disappoints. They have the normal kinds like chicken noodle, tortilla, and black bean. But every now and again they have Chicken Peanut Soup. I almost didn’t order it the first time I saw it on the menu, it sounded weird. But I am so glad that I did. It reminds of Chicken Satay in soup form.

My version of this soup is based off of my favorite chicken satay recipe, so I am calling it Chicken Satay Soup. I am thrilled with how this recipe turned out. It exceeded my expectations, and Wes declared it the “best soup ever made”.  This soup is hearty, sweet, spicy, and tart all at the same time. I’ve made it twice in a week.

Do not let the size of the ingredient list turn you off. It is mostly spices and a few cans that you need to open. No sweat. I had my food processor out for another recipe while I was making this so I let it do the dirty work with the onions, garlic, and ginger.

This is the type of recipe that you need to taste as you go to check for seasoning. I did not add any salt or pepper because there is a lot of soy sauce in there. But at the end, I took a taste and needed to add a little more acid and a splash more soy sauce. You are looking for a balance between tart, salty, spicy, and sweet.

    I usually take my laptop to a cafe as well, but haven’t found a place with amazing soups like this beauty. Love the addition of coconut milk, because that always makes the most creamiest soup. Gonna try this for sure. Thanks Bree!

    This looks and sounds so good!!

  3. Tedi says:

    Hi! This looks fantastic! One question though — do you have a sub for sherry? Or would the soup not be as good if it was left out? Just because I don’t want to buy sherry as I would hardly ever use it.

    Thanks!

      I don’t really have a sub for sherry. I think you could leave it out, but it is one of my favorite ingredients. I use it all the time. You can buy a really inexpensive one for $3 at the store.
