Lime Chicken Soup

Adapted from Sea Salt with Food

This soup was so light and fresh tasting. An amazing soup if you are on a diet but want something special and filling. This will be a soup I'm going to make again and again!

Serves 6

For the Broth

2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded
8 cups chicken broth
2 limes, juiced
salt
1/2 cup rice

For the Garnish
2-3 tomatoes, diced
1 medium onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 small cucumber, diced
2 jalepeno chilies, minced
4 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp salt

2-3 limes, cut into wedges

Bring the chicken broth to a boil, add rice, chicken, salt and lime juice and reduce the heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
In the meantime, chop up your garnish ingredients and mix together in a bowl.
Once the broth is done, ladle it into serving bowls and spoon a generous 1/2 cup of garnish on top. Season with lime wedges and top with cilantro.
