  • Summary

    Thai soups combine punchy flavors and aromatics such as fish sauce, fiery chile, lime juice, lemongrass, galangal, and herbs; here bold elements are tempered by tender chicken and soft, thick noodles called rice sticks (they're enjoyed throughout Asia).

    Ingredients

    • 7 ounces wide rice sticks
    • 6 cups homemade or low-sodium store-bought chicken stock
    • 2 lemongrass stalks, bottom 8 inches only, trimmed and crushed
    • 16 slices (1/4 inch thick each) jarred or canned bamboo shoots
    • 1 piece (1 1/2 inches) peeled fresh galangal or ginger (see the Guide), thickly sliced
    • 8 fresh or frozen kaffir lime leaves, plus more thinly sliced for garnish
    • 3 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
    • Juice of 2 limes
    • 1 tablespoon palm or granulated sugar
    • 4 fresh Thai chiles (see the Guide), thinly sliced
    • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each), cut into 1/2-inch-thick, 2-inch-long strips
    • 3 ounces snow peas, trimmed
    • 3 ounces oyster mushrooms
    • 1/2 cup chopped (1/2-inch pieces) Chinese yard-long or green beans
    • 1/4 cup chopped garlic chives or scallions, plus more for garnish
