    I don't know if I did something wrong, but I just thought this was bland. I didn't even want to eat the leftovers the next day for lunch, which is unusual. Won't make again.

    Deeeelicious! I added broccoli to the broth and substituted thinly sliced spicy pickles for the cucumbers because I'm not a fan of regular cuc's. I didn't have rotisserie chicken so I just boiled 2 chicken breasts for 20 min and shredded it. So good. Will definitely be making it again.

    We also found this to be bland. We've made many fantastic soups & stews with CL recipes over the years, but this wasn't one of them. It had a little bit of heat by the end of the bowl but was just bland overall.

    I saw this recipe in Cooking Light magazine. Based on the picture (kudos to the photographer) and the ingredients, I knew I had to try it right away..and I'm so glad that I did! It is easy to make and came out delicious. The flavors compliment each other well without the curry/coconut combination being over-powering. I like spicy food, so I doubled the amount of ground fresh chili paste. I was going slow, because it was my first time making it, so I would estimate that it took me closer to an hour to make, but definitely worth it. Daphmaster has a good suggestion to just boil chicken breast and then shred it. I'll have to try that next time. Seems healthier than buying a rotisserie chicken. I used slightly thicker rice noodles than shown in the recipe picture. Pay attention to the instructions on the package to make sure you don't over cook them! If you have left overs: store the noodles, chicken mixture, and broth mixture separately...

    This had a nice, good, even heat. Not too spicy aftertaste. Also had a good, hearty portion size.

    came out really fantastic, probably would have been faster had we not had to boil the chicken breasts first
