Tom Yum Chicken

This post shows you how to create the classic Thai dish of tom yum. In this dish you will find herbs such as lemongrass and kaffir lime ganlagal. There are two varieties of Tom yum, the creamy and the clear, with the clear version featured below. Spicy and oozing heat, this soup is the perfect winter warmer for those who live in cooler climates.
