Lime Soup With Chicken

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.

Lime Soup With Chicken

2 (about 370 g) Chicken Breast, skinless and boneless

  1. lime soup sounds fabulous!
    I recently bought a whole free-range organic chicken and butchered it up myself (cheaper than buying it already seperated). Got a few dinners out of it, plus a huge pot os soup, which brought the cost down a lot.

  2. The preparation here is so very similar to a tortilla soup that I make. The broth of the soup is different in that it combines the chicken stock with a base of pureed caramelized onions and tomatoes. But then I fill each bowl with Mexican fixings such as avocadoes, shredded chicken, queso fresco, etc., and pour the broth over top. Then sprinkle with tortilla strips and pasilla chiles. But I tell you, what elevates the tortilla soup to another level is a generous squeeze of lime. It's just not the same without it (which is why I clicked on your post at Tastespotting in the first place). I think many cooks would do themselves a favor to investigate the nice relationship chicken and lime carry on right under their noses! :D


  3. @lk- healthy delicious : Yes, it's definitely cheaper buying a whole chicken.

    @tastestopping: I just checkout your website, great job! The tortilla soup sounds interesting and thanks for sharing he recipe.

    @Nutmeg Nanny: Thanks. Do try to make them at home.

  4. This is refreshing. I always love the addition of lime in a chicken soup. That soup is so full of color.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
