Chicken Lime Soup

Sorry I haven't posted for a while but we have been the sick house for the last 2 weeks! We got hit with an awful version of croup and it went through 5 out of 7 of us!   Hopefully we are through and this better be it for the rest of winter!  We have had some great soups the last couple weeks.  There is something so refreshing about vegetables in soups, especially when you aren't feeling well.  Here is one of my favorites and keep checking back for more delicious soups to come.

Chicken Lime Soup

2 chicken breasts
2-4 limes
Olive Oil
Baste chicken with EVOO and squeeze one lime over.  Grill or Broil, cool - then dice.
6 c. chicken broth                     1 c. carrots, diced
1 c. red pepper diced               1 ¼ c. zucchini diced
2 garlic cloves                           1 c. tomato diced
½ c. celery diced                       ¼ c. fresh cilantro

Bring broth to simmer, add:  pepper, garlic, celery, and carrot.  Cook 15 min.  Add zucchini, cook 5 min.  Add back in chicken, lime juice, tomato – simmer.  Top with cilantro.

This goes awesome with these delicious rolls.

  1. This looks amazing. We may be making this one on Monday if I can find zucchini anywhere!
