  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups mixed vegetables (frozen or leftovers)

  2. Strain and return broth to the pot. Discard veggie scraps.
  3. Remove meat from the chicken bones and return meat to the pot. Chicken will be hot! Wait a few minutes until it can be handled.

Helpful hints

  • Substitute 1/2 cup quinoa for the rice if desired, however quinoa is higher in potassium and phosphorus.
  • Freezes well. Divide into individual servings for a quick meal later.
  • Leftover chicken and vegetables work well with this recipe
