DIRECTIONS

  • Cut your chicken breasts into small strips about 2 inches long.
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and jalapeño; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender, 5 minutes.
  • Stir in garlic and cumin; cook 30 seconds more.
  • Add broth, increase heat to high, and bring to a rapid simmer. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Stir the pan making sure to get all the bits of onion, jalapeño and cumin are well mixed into the soup and not stuck to the bottom of the pan.
  • Stir in salsa (don't drain), bring back to simmer, season with salt and pepper to taste and top with cilantro if desired.
