LP gave me a marvelously easy, low-fat recipe: chicken soup with coconut juice.

- half a chicken (I used kampung chicken as it has less fat)
- two dried red dates
- Pinch of salt (if preferred)
If you wish to give the soup a more professional touch, you could cut the chicken into small pieces and steam the soup in the coconut itself. But this practical homemaker just threw everything into the slow cooker, went to take a nap and woke up to this deliciously fragrant soup:
