Mexican-style Chicken Lime Soup (Gluten-Free)

Celiac.com 12/03/2015 - Fall almost always gets me on a soupy kick, and I'm always on the hunt for recipes I haven't tried yet. This one is a winner. This simple, delicious style of chicken soup is commonly known in Mexico of soup as Sopa De Lima. This version blends chicken and stock with herbs, spices, onions, tomatoes, chili peppers, fresh cilantro, and plenty of lime juice, to deliver a delicious soup.

  • 8 cups chicken broth
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large red onion, quartered
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 large green chile pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 6 limes, juiced
  • ½ lime
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro, for topping
  • ½ cup tortilla chips, for topping

Directions:
In a large pot, heat the chicken broth, chicken breasts, red onion, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and thyme until they begin to boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken breasts are cooked through, and the juices run clear, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove the cooked chicken to a cutting board. Let it cool a bit, then shred it down to smaller strips; return strips to the simmering pot.

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook the green onions and green chile pepper in the hot oil until tender, about 3-5 minutes.

Stir the tomatoes into the mixture and continue cooking about 3-5 minutes until soft; pour the mixture into the pot with the chicken soup.

Season with the salt; return the soup to a simmer.

Add the lime juice and ½ a lime; cook another 8-10 minutes. Remove lime half.

Remove the pot from the heat.

Serve in bowls, topped with cilantro and tortilla chips.
