A Pleasant Little Non-Recipe | Okra Cilantro-Lime Chicken Soup

Okra Cilantro-Lime Chicken Soup

Author note: This is an excellent soup for leftover chicken. It would also be excellent without the chicken . Homemade chicken stock makes this soup exceptionally better (click here for recipe).

chicken stock

salt

okra, sliced

leftover chicken (shredded or diced)

fresh lime juice

cilantro, chopped

  1. Bring the chicken stock to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Add the okra and salt. Simmer until the okra is softened. About 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the chicken and warm through for about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat and add lime juice and a few handfuls of cilantro. Salt to taste. Serve immediately.
