    • Ok y'all! I made this tonight, and now I am reporting... I ended up using 4 cups of broth, and added 2 cups water, and kept the remaining ingredients as listed. Two cups of broth just DID not cut it, once I put in the remainder of ingredients...Now I am wondering if I put TOO MUCH liquid in, as the final result DID NOT look like the picture above! Flavor was great, but soup was more of a broth, with added carrots, than anything. My family enjoyed it!

    I made this tonight, but I made some changes: I have been trying to use a powdered chicken stock, so I used that instead of broth. I just mixed the powder with water. At first I put 3 cups water in the pot, because I knew 2 cups just wouldn't cut it. I then put the carrots, coconut, cilantro and all other seasonings in and turned the burner up to high so it would boil & cook the carrots while I shredded the chicken. Once all the chicken was in I threw in a few pieces of the skin for flavoring. The water was boiling, but I decided it wasn't enough liquid so I added 2 more cups of water (so I used 5 total). I also added an additional1/8 cup of coconut. I felt like the soup needed rice, so I added an 8.8 oz/2 cups package of ready made brown rice. normally I'd cook the rice myself, but I was in a time crunch. Anyways, the soup was delicious!!! I'll definitely be making this again.
