Take a moment to discover the popular Southeast Asian dish of Khao Soi tonight. Literally translating to ‘cut noodles,’ it features fresh wonton noodles and seared chicken thighs along with a medley of spiralized carrots and shredded Napa cabbage. We serve them in a broth made of coconut milk, demi-glace and a mild yellow curry paste and topped off with Thai basil and marinated onions. A squeeze of lime juice is all that’s left to add before enjoying this fabulously tasty dinner.

  • 6 Chicken thighs

    Mise en place
    Juice half the lime; cut the other half into wedges. In a small bowl, combine the lime juice and red onions; season with S&P to taste. Pick the Thai basil leaves off the stems.

    Cook the chicken
    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with S&P. Add the chicken* to the pan and cook, 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a cutting board, leaving any brown bits (or fond) in the pan. Let the chicken rest for at least 5 minutes. Once cool enough to handle, using two forks, shred the chicken.

    Cook the noodles
    While the chicken cooks, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water. Cook, 2 to 3 minutes, until just al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain the noodles, drizzle with oil and set aside in a warm spot. Reserve the pot.

    Cook the vegetables
    In the reserved pan of fond, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the carrots and cabbage; cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until softened. Season with S&P to taste.

    Prepare the broth
    Heat the reserved pot on medium-high. Add the coconut milk, demi-glace, kaffir lime leaves (using your hands, gently bruise the leaves before adding), 3 cups of water and as much of the curry paste as you’d like. Whisk to combine thoroughly and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, until the flavours are combined and the broth is very hot.

    Plate your dish
    Divide the shredded chicken, cooked noodles, carrots and cabbage between your bowl. Remove the kaffir lime leaves from the broth and ladle the hot broth into each bowl. Garnish with the Thai basil (roughly chop before adding) and as much of the marinated onions as you’d like. Serve the lime wedges on the side. Bon appétit!
