Number of Servings: 18


    one head or 6 c bok choy
    2 32oz cans stewed tomatoes
    2 large or 2 c sliced onions
    2 c sliced bellpepper
    2 c sliced carrots
    2 c sliced celery
    2 chicken thighs or other preferred pieces of chicken
    2 quarts water
    1 tbsp thyme
    1 tbsp rosemary
    salt and pepper to taste (lots of pepper is good)


boil chicken in water 30 minutes in large stock pot approx. 6 qt size, remove chicken from broth and debone, add chicken and all remaining ingredients to pot and reduce heat to low to med-low temp. Add more water if desired. Once everything is tender, you can freeze part of it for later. Keeps in the refrigerator for several days and is a great snack for when you are dieting. Sometimes I add some cooked brown rice to a bowl full when I have the rice left over. Overall its delicious and filling.Based on the amount of water, tomatoes, and cups of vegetables I estimate the number of servings to be about 18-20 one cup servings.

    I added an inch of ginger root to chicken whilst cooking, along with some crushed garlic, which just add a small zest to the flavour. - 3/25/07

    I like to refrigerate my broth until the fat surfaces and then skim it off and use light meat to reduce calories. Quite delicious! - 3/16/07
