Ingredients

    1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
    48 oz container low sodium chicken broth
    5 C water
    1 C water
    12 oz pkg Barilla tri color rotini pasta
    1.5 C diced celery
    1 C chopped onion
    1 package frozen broccoli
    1 package peas and carrots
    1/2 C fresh parsley
    2 Tbs minced garlic
    2 Tbs black pepper
    1 jar low sodium chicken gravy or 2 pkgs dry
    3 Tbs cornstarch

Tips

You can adjust the amount of cornstarch to make this a thinner soup or thicker stew. Frozen veggies make this an easy dish to prepare, but fresh works great too. Just be sure to add fresh veggies in with the onions and celery to be sure they are cooked evenly.


Directions

In a large pot add chicken broth and 5 C water. Add in chicken breasts, celery, and onions. Cook over medium high heat. When breast meat is done, remove it from pot (leave celery and onions boiling) and shred or chop. Set meat aside. Add frozen vegetables to pot and boil for 3-5 minutes, then add in rotini pasta, garlic, and pepper. Boil 5 minutes, then add in fresh parsley. Add cornstarch to 1 cup cold water, stir until dissolved. If you are using packaged gravy, add this to the cup of water as well. You will have a fairly thick mixture, but that's fine. Add this and your cut up chicken to the pot. If you are using jar gravy, add this in now as well. Cook another 2-5 minutes until desired thickness is reached, stirring often. Remove from heat and serve.
