Chili's Chicken and Green Chile Soup
Copycat Recipe

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves
4 (15 oz) cans chicken broth
2 cans cilantro and lime flavored Rotel tomatoes
1 (7oz) can  chopped green chiles
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup lime juice
cumin, to taste
1 bunch cilantro, leaves only, chopped

Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt, pepper and cumin. Place in a baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees  for about 30 minutes, or until juices run clear. Shred and set aside.

In a stock pot, cook the onion in olive oil over medium-low heat for about 8-10 minutes or until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute (do not let it brown).

Add broth, Rotel tomatoes, green chiles, lime juice and cumin. Bring to boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Add chicken and cilantro, simmer for another 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and more cumin to taste.
