This ancient Peruvian Chicken Soup is said to bring the dead back to life.
Well here is my recipe.
Serves 4 (4 weightwatchers smart points)
2 chicken breasts (about 400g) sliced
1 corn cob cut into 8 cobettes
1 potato, quartered
1 red pepper, sliced
1 carrot, diced
1 courgette, in large dice
1 litre chicken stock
1 big bunch of fresh coriander
1 fresh chilli pepper
2 cloves of garlic
Juice if one lime
Heat the chicken stock and first add the carrots, potato and corn cobettes.
After about 10 minutes simmering add the peppers, chicken and courgettes. Simmer for another 10 minutes. Check the seasoning, add salt and pepper to taste.
In a blender mix the coriander, chilli, lime and garlic with some of the hot broth from the cooking pot.
Add this gorgeous green smoothie to the broth just before serving.
You can also add some cooked rice into the serving bowl, but I left it out.
Enjoy this wonderful soup.
