Aguadito de pollo, also referred to as levanta-muertos (English: "to wake the dead"), is a traditional chicken soup in Peruvian cuisine consisting of chicken, cilantro and vegetables.[1][2] The dish is prepared using large chunks of chicken, and additional ingredients used can include potatoes, corn, peas, other vegetables, rice, noodles, red pepper and various spices.[1][2][3] It typically has a pronounced green coloration due to a significant amount of cilantro used in the soup.[2]

In Peru, aguadito de pollo is consumed in part for having a theoretical potential for easing or alleviating symptoms associated with the hangover.[1]
