just need to say that mint is not at all used in portuguese recipes. And the chicken soup there is simply just done with chicken (all the chicken, including skin and liver), pasta (small pastas) and salt. and of course water. just boil all together!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, add chicken breast, onion, parsley, zest & mint sprig, & simmer until done, about 35 minutes.
  2. Remove the breast & let it cool before stripping off the meat & cutting it into a julienne.
  3. Strain the broth, then return it to the ot & bring it to a boil. Add pasta & chopped mint, season to taste with salt & white pepper, then heat until pasta is cooked al dente.
  4. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice & julienned chicken. Ladle into soup bowls & ENJOY!
