Straight from “The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook” by Arthur Agatston! It contains 46 grams of protein!

* 1 tablespoon canola oil
* 1 small onion, chopped
* 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
* 2 garlic cloves, minced
* 2 teaspoons ground cumin
* 5 cups lower-sodium chicken broth
* 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch strips
* 2 cups mild refrigerated fresh salsa
* Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and jalapeno; cook, stirring often, until vegetables are tender, 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cumin; cook 30 seconds more.

Add broth, increase heat to high, and bring to a rapid simmer. Add chicken and cook until no longer pink, about 3 minutes. Stir in salsa, bring back to simmer, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve hot.

Makes 4 (2 1/4-cup) servings.

Note: If you prefer shrimp, just add 1 1/2 pounds of shrimp when you add the salsa and simmer for 1 minute.
