Chicken Avocado Soup

IMG_3637

There’s just no easy way to photograph soup in my opinion. All the good stuff normally sinks to the bottom and it’s a tough dish to “capture”. This was my best attempt at a delicious chicken avocado soup. It’s a perfect fall dish to make one night and then have leftovers throughout the week or extras to freeze. I even earned the seal of approval from B ( aka: it’s man approved).

(serves 4)

ingredients:
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
2 tsp. olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
1 1/2 c. green onion, finely chipped and divided
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tomato, diced
3- 14.5 oz. cans of chicken broth
1/8 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. kosher salt
2 avocados, diced
1/2 c. cilantro, finely chopped

directions:

Anytime a recipe calls for cooked & shredded chicken I always boil it in water for 18-20 minutes depending on the size of chicken pieces and then shred it. If you’re in a time crunch or don’t feel like doing all that, save yourself the trouble and pick up a rotisserie chicken. Just shred and add!

In a dutch oven or equivalent, heat the 2 tsp of olive oil over medium heat until hot. Next, add 1 cup of chopped onions and minced garlic. Saute for about two minutes. Add the diced tomato and saute one more minute. Add chicken broth, cumin and salt to the pot. Stir well and bring to a boil. Cover the pot and simmer on low for 15-20 minutes.

Layering in separate bowls, fill each bowl with shredded chicken diced avocado, chopped green onions (from the remaining 1/2 cup) and cilantro. Lastly, scoop the chicken broth into the bowls and enjoy!

    We actually had this soup for dinner on Sunday night! It’s so yummy and perfect for this dreary weather we’ve been having in Nashville lately! My husband ended up baking the chicken and added a ton of spices so the soup ended up having a little kick!

    I made this tonight and it was delicious. I added quite a bit more cumin, a yellow onion instead of green (since that was what I had on hand) and added a lot more garlic per our love of garlic. The kids even loved it!!!
