Tall & Handsome and I love Thai food. Therefore, we’re always on a quest for great Thai to prepare at home. One of our favorites is Thai Coconut Soup. This is our latest version. We made it one evening after work and it hit the spot! We utilized one of our new favorite ingredients…rotisserie chicken. We try to keep several packs of deboned cooked rotisserie chicken in the freezer. The packs thaw fast and are great to use in all kinds of recipes.
