Recipe Notes

I cut the chicken breast in half to speed up the cooking time. You can dice the chicken and cook it that way too.

Just a couple notes about the veggie mix I used in this recipe. I used baby carrots for two reasons: they are sweeter and you don't need to peel them. Just diced them up and throw into the stock pot. Also, my kiddos love baby carrots so I always have them on hand! I didn't use an onion in this recipe because our kids don't like it and I don't feel the need for it but you can definitely add 1/2 of a cup of diced onion to the veggie mix. Like with almost every savory recipe on my site, I encourage you to adjust it to your likings.
