Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Mushroom Coconut Soup

Thai food bears signature flavors that are fresh, citrusy and bright. This Slow Cooker Thai Chicken Mushroom Coconut soup is no exception. The fragrant broth is satisfying with added chicken, mushrooms and jalapeno slices for body. Lemongrass and Kaffir lime leaves are two key ingredients to build the flavor of the soup. They usually may be found in the herb section of well-stocked grocery stores like Whole Foods, or in Asian dedicated grocery stores.

  • 2 cup low-sodium Chicken Stock
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced Basil leaves


  • In a 6 quart slow cooker or larger, layer the shallots, garlic and ginger on the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the chicken on top, followed by the mushrooms, jalapeno, lemongrass, kaffir lime leaves, almond-coconut milk, chicken stock and salt. Cook on HIGH for 3 1/2 hours or low for 5 1/2 hours.

*Mushroom cleaning tip: the best way to quickly clean a mushroom is you don't have a special mushroom brush is to dampen a paper towel (should be moist but not fully wet) and gently rub the cap and stem of the mushroom. This removes any particles without making the mushroom 'soggy'.
