  • Summary

    Ginger and chiles give this Southeast Asian rendition its aroma and spice, while lemongrass lends the soup a seductive floral note. By swapping the traditional seasonings for more exotic ones, you achieve a soup that's just as soothing as the original but with nuanced layers of flavors.

    Ingredients

    • 1 whole chicken (about 4 pounds), cut into pieces (including back)
    • 8 cups water
    • Coarse salt
    • 4 garlic cloves, smashed
    • 4 thin slices fresh ginger, plus 1 tablespoon thin matchsticks
    • 3 shallots, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 bunch fresh cilantro (2 cups packed)
    • 2 large lemongrass stalks, yellow and pale-green parts only, sliced crosswise (1/2 cup), plus 1 tablespoon very thinly sliced
    • 3 strips (2 inches each) lime zest plus 2 tablespoons juice (from 2 limes)
    • 1 or 2 fresh green Thai chiles, thinly sliced
    • 1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
    • Garnish: chopped fresh cilantro and lime wedges
