2 tablespoons canola oil
3 shallots, thinly sliced
2 fresh Thai chiles, thinly sliced
One 15-ounce can unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 pound shredded rotisserie chicken (4 cups)
1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels (from 2 to 3 ears)
3 cups spinach leaves
1 cup basil leaves, plus more for serving
How to Make It
In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil. Add the shallots and chiles and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the coconut milk, stock and lime juice and bring just to a simmer. Season the broth generously with salt and pepper. Stir in the chicken and corn and cook until hot, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the spinach and simmer until just wilted, then stir in the 1 cup of basil. Transfer to shallow bowls, garnish with basil and serve.

Review Body: This recipe is very good as is. I loved it, especially the simplicity and how fast to put together. Hubby enjoyed it too. If you want some extra flavor-you can add some coriander, cilantro, ginger or soy sauce or coconut aminos, but it's not necessary.
