  • Preparation
  • Rinse the chicken under cold running water.
  • Put the chicken, water, half of the minced onions, 2 cloves garlic, and the salt and pepper in a large stockpot.
  • Bring to a boil, covered, over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat and simmer the chicken, covered, for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove the chicken from the stock to a large plate.
  • Bone the chicken breasts and cut into bite-size chunks.
  • Return the chunks of chicken breast to the pot.
  • Reserve the rest of the chicken meat for another use.
  • Cut the pieces of yucca in half lengthwise, cut away the fibrous core in the center of each piece with a paring knife, then cut the yucca into 1/2-inch chunks.
  • Add the yucca, potatoes, the remaining onions and 2 cloves garlic, and the cumin to the stock.
  • Bring to a boil, covered, then reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
  • Add the plantains and lemon juice to the soup, and continue simmering until the plantains are tender, about 20 minutes.
  • Remove the soup from the heat, and stir in the scallions and cilantro.
  • Taste and adjust the seasoning, and serve at once.
