This isn’t your typical chicken soup recipe! It’s packed with tons and tons of flavor and leaves you head over heels in love. This is more of a Mexican chicken soup than a classic chicken noodle soup. There actually aren’t even any noodles in it. BUT you are going to have so much flavor in every bite; you won’t miss the noodles.

⏲️ Storage

You can easily store leftover homemade chicken soup in the refrigerator after it’s cooled down all the way. Once cool, keep in a sealed container. You can also freeze the leftovers too. It will last 4-5 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer.

To reheat the soup, place in a pot using medium heat until it’s hot all the way through.

📌 FAQs

Can I use chicken thighs instead of breasts?

Oh yes, it’s easy to swap breasts for thighs. You need to use meat that is boneless and skinless for best results. As long as you do that, you shouldn’t have any trouble, and the flavor will be pretty good.

Is it okay to use leftover chicken?

Yep! It’s more than fine to use leftover cooked chicken, roasted chicken or rotisserie chicken to make this soup. You will still need to rub it with the chili lime rub and follow the rest of the directions. It will save you a big step using pre-cooked chicken.

Can I make homemade chicken soup on the stovetop?

Absolutely! You can simply cook and shred the chicken and add all the ingredients to a soup pot. Cook on medium and stir frequently. You will need to cook until it’s hot all the way through. I recommend letting it cook for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour so the spices can really blend together well.
