    Sackville's Note:

    The next time you roast a chicken, don't even think of throwing away all those lovely bones. Instead, plop them in a pot and use them to make this hearty soup. You can make it go further by adding some prawns or strips of chicken to the broth.

      Place the carcass and all the stock ingredients in a large pan.

    3. 3
      You will need to add a cup of water from time to time, to keep the stock topped up.

      Measure out 150ml of this broth into a pan for the soup.

      The rest can be frozen for another day.

      My boyfriend and I loved this soup! I changed it quite a bit because I dont like coconut but we made it into a spicy broth soup and added a little fish sauce to give it a little more flavor. Great soup, even without the coconut!

      This soup has much promise! Through some errors of my own, there was a bit to be desired. I read your "1/2 lime, zested" too literally, and zested the lime, then proceeded to put the 1/2 lime in the soup, rather than the zest, which is what I think you intended. The broth had a lovely flavour and everything tasted very Thai-like. I added too much coconut milk, so the broth was thicker and whiter than the pic. I used a good sized chili, and left the seeds in and that was perfect. Thanks for the recipe!
