Original recipe yields 8 (1 cup) servings



  1. Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill for medium heat. Grill chicken breasts for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Remove from the grill, and cut into chunks.
  2. In a large pot, combine the chicken, water, bouillon and carrot. Season with allspice, thyme, cinnamon, ginger and garlic. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Pour in the tomato, coconut milk and hot pepper sauce. Heat through, but do not boil.
  3. Ladle into bowls, and top with shredded mozzarella cheese and tortilla strips. Squeeze juice onto soup from lime wedges.

I am extremely pleased with this recipe! I reduced the water by half, but increased the coconut milk and tomatoes. I also doubled the spices, except for the red hot sauce (Sriracha, in my case). Next time I will leave the quantity of tomatoes as is, but continue with the reduced water and doubled coconut milk and spices. I used vegetarian chicken substitute and bottled lime juice, and we served it with the shredded pizza cheese we had on hand. This was fantastic. My fiance is a VERY picky eater, and he enjoyed it and said I should definitely make it again! It has a nice warm spiciness to it, without being uncomfortably hot. If I could give it six stars, I would.



Good recipe -- easy to prepare and a very interesting mixture of flavors. Don't skimp on the lime! If I make it again, I might add rice to make it a little heartier.



VERY good soup! I agree with half the water and double the spices, otherwise the ingredients are drowned out and the soup is too watery. I added avocado slices and fresh chopped cilantro at the end. Use about a 1/4 slice of lime for each bowl. I also added a little rice to make it more hearty.
