Sopa Verde

Recipe by EdsGirlAngie
READY IN: 2hrs 30mins




  • In a large soup pot, bring to a boil the 8 cups of water, the chicken breast, onion, and cloves; skim off any foam.
  • After 10 minutes, add the potatoes and simmer for another 25 minutes.
  • Reserve the broth.
  • Discard the onion and cloves.
  • Transfer the potatoes and chicken to a plate to cool; when cool enough to handle, cube the potatoes and shred the chicken.
  • In a small saucepan, saute the 1 cup chopped onion and the garlic in the olive oil until tender but not browned.
  • Transfer this into the reserved chicken broth, along with the kale, white wine, coriander, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
  • Add the chicken (still reserving the potatoes) and salt and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 1-1/2 hours.
  • Add reserved potatoes and simmer another 1/2 hour, uncovered.
  • Correct seasoning if you wish, and just before serving, stir in the fresh lemon juice.
