Brown chicken in non-stick skillet for a couple of minutes; don't cook all the way Mix chicken, celery, carrot, onion, tomatoes and juice, broth, dried thyme, some of the chopped cilantro, and ½ the serrano pepper into a pot; simmer for 1 hour over low heat; add salt and pepper to taste The more liquid you use, add a few more of the ingredients above (for more or less soup, of course) Stir in fresh thyme, rest of cilantro, rest of the pepper, and ½ the lime juice; cook 10 more minutes Serve hot over noodles (I like egg noodles) or cooked rice, with a bit of cilantro and lime juice squeezed in.
