Thai soups combine punchy flavors and aromatics such as fish sauce, fiery chile, lime juice, lemongrass, galangal, and herbs; here bold elements are tempered by tender chicken and soft, thick noodles called rice sticks (they're enjoyed throughout Asia).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add noodles; cook according to package instructions, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain; rinse under cold running water. Set aside.

  • Bring stock, lemongrass, bamboo shoots, galangal, and 4 lime leaves to a boil in a large pot. Reduce heat; simmer 8 minutes. Stir in half of the fish sauce, half of the lime juice, half of the sugar, and half of the chiles; cook 4 minutes.

  • Stir in chicken, and cook until chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Taste, and add more fish sauce, sugar, or chiles as desired. Discard lemongrass and lime leaves. Stir in snow peas, mushrooms, beans, chives, and remaining 4 lime leaves. Remove from heat, and stir in remaining lime juice. Divide soup and noodles among 6 serving bowls; garnish with lime leaves and chives.
