Reviews forCoconut-Lime Chicken Curry Soup
"Much too much lime! The spice was good but the lime overpowered everything else. I love this idea and will keep the basics around to tweak to fit our tastes better. Add some veggies to give it some texture and variety also."
"This has a wonderful coconut lime flavor, however, I wouldn't call it a soup if you follow the directions to a "t" - it's more like a loose casserole, which is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. I ended up adding low sodium chicken broth to loosen it up a bit, but if you don't mind the thicker consistency, it's not really needed because as is it tastes great. Not spicy at all to me - I like super hot food though. Thanks for the recipe Lisa R!"
