  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 quart low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can of light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Chili-garlic sauce, to taste*
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Chick-fil-A Chicken filet, de-breaded and shredded
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced

The chili-garlic sauce packs some heat, so those adverse to spicy foods should use sparingly. We recommend 1 tablespoon for a nice level of heat.


  • Begin by portioning and preparing all ingredients.
  • Heat canola oil in sauce pan over medium-high heat. Sauté ginger, mushrooms, onions and garlic for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
  • Add chicken broth and coconut milk, and bring to a simmer.
  • Add soy sauce, chili-garlic sauce and sugar. Let simmer.

  • Add salt, lime zest and lime juice.
  • Add chicken and let soup simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve soup with an optional garnish of cilantro and enjoy!
