Chicken and Lime Soup with Avocado



1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups chicken stock
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
2 Tbsp. cilantro plus additional for garnish
1 medium lime
1 avocado, sliced



Heat olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add in onion, jalapeño and garlic and cook until onions are tender, about five minutes. Add chicken stock, canned tomatoes and chicken breast to the pot. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Once the pot is boiling, reduce heat to medium low and cover. Let simmer for one hour. After simmering, remove the chicken breast from the pot and shred. Return it to the pot. Squeeze the juice of the lime into the soup and stir well. Add in chopped cilantro and mix well. Spoon into serving bowls or cups. Top with avocado slices and cilantro sprigs. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings
