[Elizabeth's Chicken Soup]

My sister and I were talking about recipes and some new easy meals to make that will last a couple of days... She had shared one of her staples in her recipe book, homemade chicken soup... Easy for any of us to make and create to our tastes.... One of the things I like about a basic chicken soup recipe is that you can be more creative when adding the vegetables and seasonings.... depending on what is in your refrigerator......

• 2-3 cans of Chicken Broth
• Vegetables - Zucchini, carrots, asparagus... green beans... fresh or canned...
• I usually add 2/3 to a cup of each to create a hearty soup.
• 1/4 cup diced onion
• salt , pepper, garlic, basil, other seasonings to your tasting.
• 1 cup chopped pre-cooked chicken breast

Add all together.
Bring soup to a boil and let simmer for 20 minutes.

Serve with some accent garnishes: like chopped cilantro, shredded cheese.
Serve with a slice of bread or roll and a small dinner salad ....
and you are set for a nice easy lunch or dinner...
