Looking for a soup that takes 30 minutes to make, yet tastes like you simmered it all day? This Cilantro Lime Chicken Soup is just what you need on a chilly winter day!
During these winter months, my husband and I crave soup on a daily basis. And making soups all day, every day, is tough on your creativity at times, so when I found myself with a fresh bunch of cilantro and a couple of limes, I decided to make a light Cilantro Lime Chicken Soup – broth based and bright with fresh flavors!
If I have one recommendation for you this winter, it’s to make a huge batch of chicken or vegetable stock and portion it into two quart containers, freeze it, and rejoice in the fact that whenever you crave soup, it will be less than 30 minutes from frozen stock to hot soup bowl.
This Cilantro Lime Chicken Soup recipe is as easy as poaching the chicken in the hot stock, adding some lime and cilantro stems (don’t throw those stems out when you use your cilantro, they are packed with flavor!), and basically waiting for the flavors to meld together. Once ready, the stems are strained and you’ll add your pulled chicken, top with fresh avocado, cilantro leaves, and jasmine rice if you’d like. The perfect soup recipe to warm you up on chilly afternoons and nights.
