Chicken Soup, Lisa's Homemade

Submitted by: LISAINMS

Introduction

A quick and easy good-for-you soup. This recipe uses my homemade chicken broth (from cooking the breasts), but you could easily use a packaged broth -choose fat-free and low sodium! I freeze this in individual containers for an easy lunch grab. This is a great basic recipe to expiriment with different vegetables, grains and beans. A quick and easy good-for-you soup.
