Spicy chicken, coconut and sweet potato soup

I'm in the mood of a healthy and delicious soup. This has oriental influences and the addition of the coconut milk makes it fantastic.  I am simply in love with this easy and amazing recipe! It is so tasty... I simply cannot stop eating it ...

  • 1.5kg chicken breast (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 5 garlic cloves (grated)
  • 3 cm ginger (grated)
  • 2 hot peppers (diced)
  • 1/2 tablespoon turmeric
  • 2 tablespoon cumin (powder)
  • 2 tablespoons coriander (powder)
  • 2 big sweet potatoes (peeled and diced)
  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 3l water
  • salt
  • pepper
  • parsley (for decoration)

  1. Boil the chicken for 15 minutes and skim the "scum" created on the surface.
  2. Add sweet potatoes and let them boil for another 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a pan, pour the olive oil and heat it. 
  4. Add the garlic, onion, ginger and hot peppers and let them cook for a while in the pan.
