Thai Peanut Soup



I came across a very interesting soup recipe in my new cook book, The Best of Mr. Food Weeknight Quickies. The soup sounded very good and very different from anything I have ever seen before, it made me think of that wonderful peanut sauce that you dip chicken into. I love the flavor combination of the sauce and chicken, so I altered his recipe to create a whole new one.



¼ C. - Butter
1 - Small Onion (diced)
2 Tbs. - Flour
2 C. - Chicken Broth
1 C. - Milk
1 C. - Heavy Cream
1 C. - Smooth Peanut Butter
2 C. - Rotisserie Chicken (diced)
1/2 C. - Peanuts (chopped)
2 Tbs. - Thai Seasoning
1 Tbs. - Johnny's Garlic Seasoning
Salt & Pepper


Melt butter in a large soup pot over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, reduce the heat to low and add the flour, stir until well blended and cook for 1 minute. Gradually add the chicken broth, milk and chicken, cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the soup is thick and bubbly. Stir in the cream and peanut butter and cook for another 5 minutes. Add in the seasonings and peanuts and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Serve hot garnished with black sesame seeds.

That looks yummy, I wonder if you could use low carb peanut butter?

I love Thai peanut sauce, I sometimes eat it by the spoonful....this soup looks like it would help with my cravings!

Cheryl...I really don't see why you could not use a low carb or even a sugar free peanut butter.

Lots of my favorite ingredients in this yummy soup, and another great way to use rotisserie chicken.

Peanut sauce is one of my favorite condiments.

This sounds really good - sans the onions of course!

Really spicy too with 2 tablespoons of Thai chili - I just found out that a little of that goes a long way, and I loves my spice!
