    1. Bring a small pot of water to the boil. Add chicken breasts; simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 7 minutes. Drain and allow chicken to cool slightly; shred or finely slice chicken.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add 1/2 of the chopped onion, lime juice, 1/2 of the chopped fresh coriander, jalapeno peppers and garlic until onion is slightly greenish in colour, about 5 minutes.
    3. Combine water and stock granules in a small bowl. Pour into the pot. Let cook until just heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir chicken into the pot.
    4. Ladle soup into 4 bowls. Top with remaining onion, fresh coriander, avocado and queso fresco.

    This is amazing. I'm not a big soup lover, but I will definitely be making this again. The flavors work so well together!  -  15 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Perfect! Next time I may top with a few tortilla chips for texture.  -  16 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Best soup I have ever made! I stuck to the recipe. Good with or without the queso.  -  20 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
