Soup Sunday- Lime Chicken Soup

Soup weather returned to Milwaukee this week. We hardly saw the sun the last two weeks. It's rained almost every day with temperatures in the 40's.  That is pretty typical spring weather here. It may not get warm until late in May. In the mean time that means a chance to try out another soup recipe. Hope you like this weeks additions.
