Cook time

15 min.

  • 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 24 oz low-sodium fat-free chicken stock
  • 14 oz can light coconut milk
  • 4 oz red curry paste
  • 13 oz low-sodium canned corn, drained
  • 13 oz low-sodium canned green beans, drained (I like Libby’s Green Bean Vegetable Pouch)
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium canned peas, drained
  • 2 Tbsp finely diced jalapeno
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 Tbsp tamari or light soy sauce
  • 4 oz Vermicelli rice noodles
  • Optional soup toppings:
  • Green onion, sliced
  • Serrano pepper, sliced thin
  • Cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • Sriracha sauce

Combine all ingredients, except rice noodles, in a large stockpot and stir to incorporate curry paste and other ingredients. Cover with lid, and bring soup to a boil over high heat. Cook for 10 minutes, or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

While soup is cooking, prepare rice noodles according to package directions. Drain noodles, then add to individual soup bowls and pour soup over the noodles. Top with green onion, serrano pepper, cilantro, and sriracha, if desired.
