Spicy Lime Jalapeño Chicken Soup + A Giveaway

September 28, 2016
Spicy Jalapeno Lime Chicken Soup Recipe

We have a winner!! Congratulations to Shareen! Thank you to everyone who left comments and entered. Stay tuned I have lots more giveaways coming this holiday season!

Soup season is back, and the whole world’s rejoicing!

After three months of crunching on salads I’m yearning for the tenderly cooked vegetables and poached chicken in the perfect bowl of soup.

Spicy Jalapeno Lime Chicken Soup Recipe

The real treat of this spicy lime jalapeño chicken soup is its ability to be a satisfying meal but still leave you feeling light on your toes. It has chicken and white cannellini beans for heft but the broth is infused with spice and lime juice; flavors that will hit the spot. And just in case it is still hot where you are (like here, where we are) this soup is still for you. It’s spicy edge will make you sweat in the best possible way.

Spicy Lime Jalapeño Chicken Soup Recipe
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
A spicy jalapeño and shredded chicken soup bright with lime juice and spices like ground cumin, coriander, and smoked paprika. Chopped kale and cannellini beans make it filling without being too heavy.
Serves: 4-6 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 pound 4 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3-4 limes, divided
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt, plus more for seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 jalapeños, diced (seeds removed if you'd like it less spicy)
  • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon Simply Organic ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Simply Organic smoked paprika
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans
  • 3 cups chopped kale
Instructions
  1. Rub chicken breasts on all sides with the zest of 1 lime, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper.
  2. Heat remaining oil in a large 4½ quart pot over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and cook until browned on both sides, about 8 minutes (they won't be cooked through). Add onions, garlic, and jalapeños, and cook until starting to brown, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add spices and remaining salt and cook, stirring until the spices are toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute more.
  4. Add broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 1 hour. Using tongs, remove chicken breasts to a plate. Using two forks, shred chicken into strips. Return to the pot.
  5. Add beans, kale, and the juice of 3 limes and cook a few minutes to wilt the kale and warm the beans. Taste and add more lime juice or salt if needed.

  • Elena October 3, 2016 at 7:25 pm

    I’d love to see recipes that use common ingredients like cabbage, carrots, avocados, but use unusual and interesting techniques.
    For example, I just learned that making “matchsticks” out of carrots by cutting the carrot lengthwise will produce longer-cooking matchsticks, and if you cut them out from a carrot width-wise, they are more tender and cook faster (learned it from a Japanese cooking show, they also have very large, thick carrots there).
    So I’d love to see recipes for soups that are might be familiar, but use new techniques.
