4 oz boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into small cubes
2 cups organic, no-salt chicken broth
½ lemon, sliced
2 cups loosely packed spinach
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 stalk lemongrass, sliced into 1-inch pieces
½ tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp ground turmeric
¼ tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Optional: fresh cilantro, chopped, for garnish
Heat the coconut oil in a soup pot or large saucepan over medium heat.
Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, and sliced lemongrass to the pot. Sauté for about 2-3 minutes until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant.
Add the chicken breast cubes to the pot and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is lightly browned.
Pour in the chicken broth and add the sliced lemon, ground ginger, ground turmeric, and cayenne pepper. Stir well to combine all the ingredients.
Bring the soup to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and let it simmer for about 10 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
After 10 minutes, remove the lid and add the spinach to the pot. Stir gently and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until the spinach wilts.
Season the soup with sea salt and black pepper according to your taste preferences. Adjust the seasonings as needed.
Remove the pot from heat and discard the lemongrass stalks.
Ladle the soup into a bowl and garnish with fresh cilantro if desired.
