Pineapple Soup with Chicken

Khmer Pineapple Soup with Chicken and Squids is a delightful and straightforward recipe, celebrated for its sweet and sour flavor profile. This popular dish hails from Cambodia and is cherished for its simplicity and delicious taste. The ingredients include 5 cups of water, half a chicken cut into bite-sized chunks, canned chunk pineapple (8 oz), or half of a fresh pineapple cut into similar-sized pieces, and half a pound of well-cleaned squids cut into bite-sized portions.

The cooking process begins by boiling water in a soup pot. The chicken and pineapple are then added to the boiling water, and the mixture is cooked until the chicken becomes tender. Once the chicken reaches the desired tenderness, the squids are introduced into the pot. A thorough stir ensues, and the soup continues to simmer until it returns to a bubbling boil.

To enhance the flavors, the soup is seasoned with salt, sugar, fish sauce, and a dash of black pepper, creating a harmonious blend of sweet, sour, and savory elements. The final touch involves garnishing the soup with chopped green onions and cilantro, adding a burst of freshness and color. The completed Pineapple Soup with Chicken and Squids is now ready to be served, providing a taste of Cambodian cuisine that is both delicious and accessible, making it a favorite among many.
