Zesty Chicken Soup


What is your favorite soup to cook when You feel sick?  For me, I love to cook chicken soups. My taste buds have been off, so I felt like a little more different Chicken soup. Last time when someone was sick in my house I made a more hearty chicken soup, loaded with tons of veggies. This time I opted for a more subtle but zesty Chicken soup. Something that would waken my taste buds with lime, jalapeno, and peppercorn. 
  • 10 cups of water in stockpot
  • 3 chicken breast with bone
  • 1  zucchini (thinly sliced)
  • tsp of whole peppercorns
  • 1/2 onion (diced)
  • 1  jalapeno pepper (thinly sliced)
  • 4 cloves of garlic (diced)
  • tsp of oregano
  • tsp of kosher salt
  • 4 tablespoons  fresh lime juice
  • serve in individual bowl each bowl 1/4 cup of water crest 2 tablespoons feta
  • cheese topped with cilantro.
In your stock Pot, fill with 8 to 10 cups of water, or Chicken Broth. Place Raw Chicken in stock pot. Toss in dice onion, thinly sliced zucchini, peppercorns, jalapeno, garlic, oregano, and salt.




 Boil for about 20 minutes over medium high heat, or until Chicken is done. 


Carefully remove Chicken form the skillet, and slice off the skin, and take off the bone. Slice, and return to the pot, add lime juice. Simmer for 10 more minutes. Carefully remove peppercorns, if needed. 


In the bowl which you are serving, put 1/4 cup of Watercress in, and pour soup on top. Top with Cilantro and Cheese. 


Serve and enjoy!




For an even more enjoyable soup, serve with Lime Fiesta Salad!
