I made this soup tonight and just had to share it with you. My whole family thought the soup was absolutely delicious. Don’t be afraid of the jalapeno; the heat factor is pretty mild. This soup is very filling and comes in at only around 350 calories a serving (with dumpling).

If you check out the Feb/Mar ’12 issue of Healthy Cooking magazine, turn to page 33. You’ll see my recipe for Mexican Chicken Soup with Cilantro Dumplings. I was a runner-up in the “One-dish” contest! (source: Taste of Home)
Be sure to use fat free and sodium free chicken broth. For the 5 cups of broth, you can use one 32oz carton plus 1/2 of one 15oz can. Make sure you don’t over-mix your dumpling batter.
Instead of the chicken breasts, you can use 3 packages (6oz each) of refrigerated cooked chicken breast (like Tyson or Perdue).
