Chicken Soup!

2 large chicken breasts
8 cups water or chicken stock
3 carrots
4 stalks of celery
garlic salt (gs) and onion powder (op) to taste
1/2 packet Trader Joe’s Alphabet Pasta…you can sub in rice (a long grain mix is yum too!) or the pasta (chicken and stars anyone???) of your choice but Hope like’s the letters so that’s what I’ve been using lately!

1. Put whole chicken breasts in broth and bring to a boil; season with gs & op…allow chicken to cook through (what’s nice about this is you can actually throw frozen chicken breasts in there if you’re short on time!)
2. Once cooked through remove chicken and allow it to cool on a plate.
3. Place rough chopped veggies and pasta/rice in the broth and boil them as much or as little as you like…for this recipe I like the veggies to be just a tad tender…no crunch but not super soft either…cover.
4. While the veggies and pasta/rice are taking a hot tub shred or dice the chicken…I prefer the look of large chunks of pulled chicken for this soup but if you’d rather, it can be chopped up.
5. Place the chicken back in the pot, cover and simmer all together for another 15 minutes…

*This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled…once it’s cooled a half or third of this can easily go in the freezer for later use!
