Recipe Notes

About 1 (12 ounce) bag of steamable broccoli works great. Cook per package instructions and add into soup when directed.
If starting with uncooked chicken breast - Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Drizzle 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place chicken on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes until chicken is cooked thoroughly (170 degrees)and juices run clear. Cool and chop chicken as directed.
