Thai Chicken Soup

I have been asked by a couple of people for the recipe for Thai Chicken Soup so thought I would post it so that others can make it too - it is delicious!

Serves 4
1 tbsp veg oil
1 garlic clove, chopped
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (approx 175g each), chopped
1/2 tsp turmeric (that's half, not 1 to 2!!)
1/4 tsp hot chilli powder
75g creamed coconut (I used coconut milk)
900ml hot chicken stock
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
50g thread noodles
1 tbsp spring onions
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
salt and pepper
dessicated coconut, finely chopped & red chillies to garnish (if required).

Heat the oil in a large pan & fry the garlic. Add the chicken pieces and spices and fry for 3 - 4 minutes.
Crumble the coconut cream into the chicken stock until dissolved (not necessary if using coconut milk). Pour into pan with lemon juice, peanut butter and noodles.
Cover pan, simmer for 15 mins.
Add spring onions and coriander, season and cook for 5 mins.
Heat dessicated coconut and chilli and fry for 2 - 3 mins.
Pour soup into bowls and add garnish.
