Directions

  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, and serrano chili; cook until the onion has softened, about 1 minute. Add the chicken, and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in the cilantro, peas, corn, and red pepper; cook for 1 minute. Pour in the chicken broth, potatoes, and rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the chicken is opaque and the potatoes are tender, about 40 minutes.

Very simple to make although with a long preparation time. The soup, if cooked as directed will result in a very tasty soup. It's worth the effort, a real homemade recipe.

It's a keeper! Very good as is; but we're tinkerers and we: -added small chunks of 1 avacado -1 cup of cilantro -drained the onion mix of excess oil before adding the other items (the soup has a significant layer of oil!)
