Oh. My. Gosh. This soup was so fabulous! I had some leftover coconut milk that I needed to use (most of a can) and I found this on my soups pinterest board. I figured I'd give it a try since it was supposed to be cooler today (it was, but it was still very humid) and since I wasn't sure how the rest of the family would like it, I made it while they were gone. This is a super easy recipe and very flavorful.

1 or 2 small carrots shredded

3 c chicken broth

1 15oz can unsweetened coconut milk
1 2-2 1/2 lb deli roasted chicken, shredded
