Cilantro Lime Chicken Soup

This was a recipe that just kind of happened in a round about way. I was craving a brothy, chicken soup (big surprise for me this time of year, I know), but I wanted something different than my Healthy Chicken Chili. I wanted something with a little more punch, or spice. So that is how this soup was created and it's now one of our favorites. The flavors are a perfect mix, with just a little kick to help you take in that chilly air.
