Yield: 6 servings
Time to make: 15 minutes.

So easy, so versatile and so much better tasting than canned chicken soup.  Serve this over toast, crackers, rice, pasta or cornbread or in patty shells as miniature chicken pies. Feel free to add or change vegetables e.g. mushrooms instead of green pepper. Try adding celery or peas. Experiment with different spices and herbs as well.
