Recipe: Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

This is a surprisingly delicious twist on chicken noodle soup. With a little spice, curry paste, lime, and of course coconut milk it takes everything I love about thai food and marries it with everything I love about a hearty chicken soup. I find with the heaviness of the coconut milk in the broth is feels like more of a meal than your garden variety chicken soup too but you make it and be the judge there.
