This Thai Chicken Noodle Soup is one of my all-time favorites. When the weather turns cooler, or if you're simply in need of comfort, this is the recipe you should reach for. What makes it special is the Thai combination of soothing lemongrass and coconut milk - these two flavors marry beautifully with chicken.
