I love this soup. I also add peeled chopped chayote and diced potatoes to the mix. I would also add diced tomatoes for added flavor. Wonderful recipe!

The big chunks of vegetables were really good but, overall, I found it rather lackluster. This recipe barely served four adults so consider doubling the recipe if you're making it for a larger group.
The zucchini needed more time to cook in order to be soft enough to eat. Don't overcook, however, as you don't want it mushy.
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts were used and worked just fine. Using a darker meat and/or meat on the bone would have added a bit more flavor.
I added chunks of potatoes with the carrots. You could add them just a bit after, if you like, but we enjoyed that they were very soft to add texture.
I found that more garlic was needed and would have added more flavor, in general, or had all of the seasonings with the chicken stock simmer for a bit longer.

This was fantastic! I used 1/2 cup of cilantro because we love it. A nice light quick soup!
