Slow Cooker Chicken Cilantro Lime Soup

Chicken Lime Cilantro Soup Recipe

Chicken + Cilantro + Lime = The Best Combo Ever!

Alright cold and flu season, we’re coming for you! This Chicken Cilantro Lime Soup is the best combination of fresh ingredients that are both nutritious and comforting. It’s super easy to make, too! The recipe calls for a slow cooker, so you literally just set it and forget it!

Just throw your chicken breasts in (or leave them out if you prefer the Vegan preparation), add the remaining ingredients (I used everything I had in my fridge for tacos – from lime to cilantro, red radishes, garbanzo beans, etc.) and some seasoning (like taco seasoning, garlic, and salt). Cover everything with broth, and in 4ish hours… Presto! You have a hearty and fresh Mexican soup!

Don’t be scared by the long list of ingredients. The great thing about soup is that you literally can’t go wrong. Play with what you have in your fridge, mix and match flavors, and share the variation that you came up with on social media or in the comments below! I love when my clients and friends send me recipes that they recreated!
