One of my favorite recipes...

I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes. I hope you all enjoy.

2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 cup frozen corn kernels (I use fresh corn on the cob and boil it first.)
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon chili powder (I use a 1 tsp)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup chunky salsa
8 ounces corn tortilla chips
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (optional)

In a large pot over medium heat, saute the chicken in the oil for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cumin and mix well. Then add the broth, corn, onion, chili powder, lemon juice and salsa. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes.
Break up some tortilla chips into individual bowls and pour soup over chips. Top with the Monterey Jack cheese and a little sour cream.

**I boil the chichen instead of pan frying it. It is much easier, and I think makes the chicken juicier. When it is done, I pull it apart in small strips and follow the recipe from there.
