    This was fantastic. My 11 and 13 year olds loved it. I made pretty many changes based on what was in my pantry... Used dry curry powder instead of red curry paste, red pepper flakes instead of Sriracha, added a few drops of sesame oil to the noodles to keep them from sticking, omitted the mint. Obviously this recipe is very flexible!

    Deliscious and EASY. My kids LOVED it- my 6 yr old, super picky eater that makes dinner a battle, LOVED it- went back for more 4 times! I reserved the cilantro and onions for mine only, the kids opted out of that, but it made it less spicy for them and allowed me to make it to my liking too! (I was out of lime juice, but it was great witout it!)

    Wonderful, bright flavors. I gave it 4 stars because I made quite a few changes to save money: made my own shredded chx, opted for dry ginger, subbed chili paste for curry paste. I also omitted the fresh cilantro & mint. Sounds like I made different recipe entirely, but I bet it is fairly similar to the original. Regardless, will make again - great for a rainy day.

    I make my own Thai tom-yum soup from scratch and this recipe is a great alternative to finding exotic and sometimes expensive ingredients. I did substitute minced ginger (available in a tube in the chilled veggies/herbs section) and skipped the mint. Otherwise, made the recipe exactly as called for and LOVED it!

    Very good. The fresh lime, cilantro, mint and green onions are a perfect match w/ the spice in the soup. Great meal.

    This makes a flavorful broth especially with the fresh herbs added at the end. It was a little pricey to make with all of the fresh ingredients. I made the recipe almost exactly. Great tangy taste and very quick to make.

    Don't omit the mint and cilantro even if you think they sound weird. The mint especially worked in this recipe.Maybe add a little oil to keep the noodles loose. Otherwise very good and super easy to make.

    I loved this soup. I'll have to warn you though... it packs some heat. I made it exactly by the recipe (but added some mushrooms). We loved it, but agreed several of our friends would have thought it was too spicy and hot. I made it for my husband because he had a horrible cold... it was just what the doctor ordered. Delicious, REALLY GOOD.

    This is glorious soup!! My 7 yr old ate 2 huge bowls, which is a triumph in itself! I added a tsp of curry powder instead of the paste, and cooked more noodles for a heartier bowl. LOVE IT!! Highly recommended for rainy nights when one is a bit under the weather....instant perk up!

    Loved the spiciness of this recipe! The cilantro was a little strong for me, but hubby had no complaints and slurped it right up. Wonderful on a cold winter night! I also roasted my own skin-on, bone-in chicken breast rather than buying rotisserie chicken. Only 5 pts!

    So good! We'll be making this again for sure. I didn't have snow peas so I doubled the carrots instead. Everything else I kept as the recipe stated. This has some serious heat, but is delicous.

    The only change I made was I roasted the chicken with a little olive oil, salt and pepper instead of using rotisserie chicken. Was so good and the heat was perfect! Will keep this in rotation this winter!

    This was the most delicious soup ever! If you take it easy on the noodles, it's enough to satisfy you without making you fat! All the flavor makes it downright therapeutic. I'm extremely impressed. It will be a regular.

    Nice! I made just a few changes. Used raw chicken instead of cooked. Fried the curry paste first and then added the stock to that. Added mushrooms. Used fish sauce instead of soy sauce. But it was an excellent recipe, that I'll be making often!

    Absolutely perfect. I added some shitake mushrooms and one extra cup of chicken broth to make it a little heartier (and so I could have some leftovers, of course). EXACTLY what I was looking for: Comforting, filling, and spicy. Saving this one.

    This recipe was great! Next time we'll add more veggies to it, but it's tasty and very versatile.
