Linda M Hicks


1 1/2 lbs Chicken thighs, boneless skinless
1 Avocado, slices
2 (15 ounce) cans Chickpeas
1/3 cup Cilantro, fresh
1 Cilantro
1/4 tsp Coriander
1/2 cup Corn, frozen
1 can Green chiles, mild
1 Lime, medium
1 Lime, wedge
1/4 tsp Oregano, dried
1 White onion, medium
4 cups Chicken broth, low sodium
1 Black pepper, Freshly ground
2 tsp Chili powder
3/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tbsp Olive oil
1 tbsp Cumin, ground
Tortilla strips or chips

Add olive oil to a large dutch oven or large pot and place over medium high heat. Add onion and green chiles and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
Next stir in cumin, chili powder, coriander and dried oregano; allow the spices to cook for 30 seconds, then add in chicken broth, 1 can of drained chickpeas (about 1 1/2 cups chickpeas), uncooked chicken breast and salt and pepper. Simmer on medium low heat for 20-30 minutes.
After 20 minutes, remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and shred with two forks. Next add in fresh lime juice and cilantro.
Finally, add the remaining can of rinsed and drained chickpeas (1 1/2 cups chickpeas) and ˝ cup water (or broth) to a blender. Blend until somewhat smooth, adding a little more water if necessary.
Pour blended chickpeas into soup pot and then stir in the corn, lime juice and cilantro. Allow soup to cook and simmer for 5-10 more minutes. Serve with tortilla chips, an extra lime wedge and avocado and cheese if you’d like. Enjoy!
