Curried Chicken and Rice Soup

This delicious curried chicken soup combines leftover or rotisserie chicken with the bold flavors of coconut milk, curry and lime for a wonderfully light but satisfying meal. It has rice in it too, so it is really a one pot dinner. Serve with some spring rolls or dumplings if desired.


  • Prep Time : 8 min
  • Cook Time : 41 min
  • Ready Time : 49 min




  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup red onion, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup brown rice
  • 1 (13.5-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)


In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium high heat.

Sauté onions, ginger and garlic for about 4 minutes or until tender. Add carrots and sauté 2 more minutes. Add chicken stock and brown rice and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes or until rice is tender.

Stir in coconut milk, chicken, lime zest and juice, curry powder and salt and cook 5 minutes, until chicken is heated through. Stir in cilantro and serve.

    Such an awesome recipe for leftover chicken!! I only had lemons so I used them and left out the zest and added a little cayenne at the end. Really good!

    Whenever I see the word “curry” my eyes light up. After making and serving this soup my entire family lit up too. It was delicious.
