Preserved Lime Chicken Soup

Monday, April 12, 2010

If you never heard or had this before, than this is the time to try it. It has a sour and tangy soup that is good for winter. Great for the common cold, cough and sore throat. I made
this soup when the ever changing and cold winter gave me a sore throat and chest congestion. As soon as I took a sip of this soup, I felt better right away. Maybe it just in my head, but it does feel great right away!

For the preserve lime:

8 to 10 limes
¼ Cup Salt

Steam the lime for 5 minutes. Then take it out and put it on a strainer and lay flat to sun dried for 3 days. After 3 days, bring enough water to cover your glass or plastic jar to boil and add the salt. Let cool slightly and then pour in jar with the dried lime in there. Let it sit for at least 2 months or until color changes..the longer preserved, the more sour it become, the better it is. It also great as a drink for a hot Summer day.


1 Small duck or chicken
1 Preserved lime
1 Tbsp of sugar
1 Tbsp of salt or to taste


1. Place the chicken or duck in a pot and fill up with water to cover completely.
2. Add salt, and preserved lime and cook for at least 1 hour 45 minutes until the meat is so tender that it about to fall off.
3. Remove from stove and serve hot.
