  • 4 bone-in chicken breasts skin on
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp herbs de Provence
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 medium red or white onion diced small
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1 cup tomatillo salsa verde
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • a dash of red chili flakes optional
  • 2 cans of cannellini or kidney beans rinsed and drained
  • 4-5 cups of chicken stock I prefer stock over broth
  • Lime juice cilantro, cheddar cheese and avocado for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Place chicken breast on a sheet pan and drizzle both sides with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and herbs de Provence.
  • Roast the chicken skin side up for about 35 minutes or until done in the middle. (Check with a thermometer)
  • Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a dutch oven. Add chopped onion and garlic and saute for about 5 minutes.
  • Add cubed sweet potatoes and ginger, cumin, chili powder, red pepper, and oregano.
  • After a few minutes, add chicken stock, beans, and salsa verde. Stir.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer with lid on for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, tear pieces of chicken up by hand and shred. Add to the soup,
  • Cook until warm.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Top with cilantro, cheese, avocado and lime juice.


Notes: I prefer a thinner soup so I add more broth but you can add less. Herbs de provence is a spice mix that can be found at any grocery store.
