Spicy Asian Chicken and Shrimp Soup

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Valerie in Florida

This is an excellent chicken soup recipe with an asian flair. The lime and cilantro really stand out. However, this soup needs to be eaten fresh. Does not reheat/store well.

This was okay.. we used the receipe because it is low in fat and had some fiber. We had to add more spice because we like "make your nose run" spicey. Thank you.
