  1. Preheat an outdoor or indoor grill for medium heat. Grill chicken breasts for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through. Remove from the grill, and cut into chunks.
  2. In a large pot, combine the chicken, water, bouillon and carrot. Season with allspice, thyme, cinnamon, ginger and garlic. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until carrots are tender. Pour in the tomato, coconut milk and hot pepper sauce. Heat through, but do not boil.
  3. Ladle into bowls, and top with shredded mozzarella cheese and tortilla strips. Squeeze juice onto soup from lime wedges.

Good recipe -- easy to prepare and a very interesting mixture of flavors. Don't skimp on the lime! If I make it again, I might add rice to make it a little heartier.

I used about half the amount of water and doubled the spices. I thought it was really good. I don't love soups for meals, but this one is an exception for me.

We really, really liked this one. It tasted like a cross between Mexican lime soup (Sopa de Lima from this site is terrific) and Tom Ka Gai. I made the following adjustments per our tastes: home...
