Soup is a healthy meal that you can load with lots of veggies. If desired, you can add some brown or wild rice to this dish, but add some extra water. This soup would go well with our Orange and Walnut Salad

    @Kevin Brennan--The liquid comes from the 32 oz of low-sodium chicken broth, which is roughly 4 cups of broth and the size of a typical container found in stores. We hope this helps and that the recipe turns out great!

    What is the liquid and how much. If put together by the directions and ingredients you have fried chicken and vegetables. Chicken Broth? 1 cup, 10 cups?

    This was so easy and delicious. Comfort food along with some biscuits and a side salad. :) I would make it again.
