Thai Yellow Curry Coconut Chicken Soup

I have been seriously craving some curry!  This soup makes a wonderful filling, slightly spicy meal served along with some Naan to soak up all that curry goodness.  

Yellow curry paste combines the best of Thai food and the best of Indian food and it's really convenient to have in the fridge.  With flavors like lemongrass, garlic, kaffir lime peel, cumin, cinnamon, tumeric and cardamom you need just a few more ingredients you can have a really flavorful fast meal.
