This Lime Soup With Chicken is healthy and very refreshing. If possible, consider using organic or free-range chicken to make the broth. Whole organic or free-range chicken is definitely more expensive; but, you can try to purchase just the carcasses for the broth, cheaper this way. So, do try making the soup and enjoy the rest of the week.
