Nancy's World-Famous-Cold-Curing-Chicken Soup

There is no written recipe. I just add stuff 'til it looks right. But this is the basic:

Nancy's World-Famous-Cold-Curing-Chicken Soup

2 cartons Swansons reduced sodium fat free chicken broth
2 chicken breasts (w/skin and on the bone)*
3 medium sized potatoes
1 head of fresh broccoli
1 cup chopped carrots (optional, Don hates carrots)
salt & pepper to taste (optional)
Mrs Dash Tomato/Basil/Garlic flavor
fresh ground ginger

Roast chicken breasts your usual way and then remove skin and take meat off the bone.
Pre-cook potatoes and chop.
Chop broccoli to desired size.

In stock pot, pour the chicken broth and start to heat.
Chop cooked chicken and add potatoes and broccoli.
Salt & pepper to taste.
I use 1 tsp of Mrs. Dash. Can be adjusted to taste.
1 level teaspoon of ground ginger.

Let the whole thing simmer on low for about 1 hour.

Freezes really well.

* = if short on time, use boneless, skinless chicken breast since they cook faster.

So glad to have this Nance - thanks. This would be a great soup to take someone who's sick with a cold, too.
