curry soup

It's that time of year again when homemade soup sounds sooo good. I had a sick one home so there was time to make soup. I did cheat a little with the CurrySimple sauce, but oh, this soup was goooood-and SPICY!!! Serves four.
You need:
2 boneless chicken thighs cut into one inch chunks
2 boneless chicken breasts cut into one inch chunks
1 tbsp olive oil
2tsp curry powder
2tsp cardamom
2tsp ground coriander
3 cups chicken broth
carrots cut into 1/4 inch rounds
medium red onion, coarsely chopped
red bell pepper, chopped
pineapple, chopped (optional)
curry simple base (see picture)
2 limes
Peel carrots and par boil until firm, but slightly soft. Slice into 1/4 inch rounds set aside. Chop onions and bell pepper coarsely. Set aside. Cut up chicken, and salt and pepper. Heat oil in simmer pan or large pot over medium heat. Add chicken and cook about 5 mins until chicken is brown turning to get all sides. Then add the spices and saute another minute until fragrant. Add chicken broth, carrots, onion, bell pepper, pineapple and the CurrySimple. Simmer about 20 mins. Finish with fresh lime juice and serve with limes and cilantro for garnish. Be careful, it's spic-Y!!!!
