  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 small onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced (optional, adjust to taste)

  • 1 small zucchini, diced

  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced

  • 1 cup cauliflower florets

  • 1 can diced tomatoes (no sugar added)

  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)


  1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced chicken and cook until browned on all sides. Remove the chicken from the pot and set aside.

  2. In the same pot, add the diced onion, minced garlic, and jalapeno pepper. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onion becomes translucent.

  3. Add the diced zucchini, red bell pepper, and cauliflower florets to the pot. Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.

  4. Return the cooked chicken to the pot and stir in the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil.

  5. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.

  6. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if needed. If you prefer a spicier soup, you can add more chili powder or jalapeno pepper.

  7. Once the soup is ready, divide it into two bowls and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro.
