If heaven existed in a bowl this would be it! I made this last night for dinner and it was truly delish! I’ve made a lot of chicken soup in my life but I think by adding coconut water it took this soup over the top!

I have to be honest here … a funny little story … last week I purchase a couple of containers of coconut water. I have been reading about all the nutritional benefits and wanted to give it a try. Well, when I was preparing my chicken soup I decided I would drink a container of the coconut water I bought and give it a taste. Yuck is all I have to say … I really didn’t like it at all … it could have been the brand but I’m not too sure. Anyway, here I have an 8oz container and I certainly didn’t want to waste it sooooo I just dumped it into my chicken soup and hoped for the best. OMG! Is all I can say … it took my usual chicken soup recipe and totally brought it over the top! The coconut water imparted a very mellow sweetness and a very slight coconut taste. I think the next time I’ll add just a little bit of lemongrass for an Asian inspired dish!
