  • Salt chicken pieces. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large soup pot. Add in the chicken and brown on all sides.
  • Once the chicken is brown, add in curry powder, oyster sauce, fish sauce, garlic, lemongrass and bay leaves. Stir well. Make sure chicken is coated in the sauces and spices.
  • Add in the carrots and mix well.
  • Next, add in water, chicken broth, and the onion. Bring to a boil and then lower to a simmer. Simmer for 30 minutes. Check the soup for impurities after the 15 minute mark and scoop away any that you see.
  • After 30 minutes of simmering, add in the potatoes and simmer for another 30 minutes.
  • Lastly, add in the coconut milk and cream of mushroom and simmer for 15 more minutes.
  • Serve with vermicelli noodles and a squeeze of lime juice.


When plating up your dish, add as much or as little vermicelli noodles you would like.
