During the cold weather months, I make soup often, but with this Vibrant Chicken Soup, that is another story. I like to make it all year around. My daughter in law, Brandy introduced me to this soup a couple of years ago around the Thanksgiving holidays. We like to make it during the holidays to offset all the rich food we are eating, like anything will, but it sure sounds good. (giggles)
Chicken, brown rice, and avocados are just a few of the ingredients in this healthy soup recipe. The recipe calls for skinless-boneless chicken breast, but in a pinch we have used canned chicken. This soup is homey, cozy and super easy to make, not to mention Healthy! Posting the recipe so you can have a healthy soup during the holidays too. Enjoy!
This recipe and others can be seen at these linky parties here!
Vibrant Chicken Soup
Recipe Source: Preventive Magazine
3 Skinless-boneless chicken breast
6 cups chicken stock, homemade or canned
3 carrots, sliced
2 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
3 tablespoons lime juice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 large avocado, cubed
2 tomatoes, cubed
2 tablespoons cilantro, minced
1 tablespoon ground coriander
6 ounce farmer cheese, cubed (I used cheddar)
In medium pot, boil the chicken until tender. Cool, cube and set aside.
In a large soup pot, bring the stock and onion to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Add carrots and simmer for 20 minutes. Add chicken to pot and heat through.
Stir in the rice, lime juice, and pepper. Heat for 3 minutes but do not boil.
Stir in the avocado, tomatoes and spices. Heat through.
Place cubed cheese in the bottom of each bowl and ladle soup over the top.
