Mexican Chicken Soup 

100g cooked chicken, shredded into bite-sized pieces
3-4 cloves minced garlic
1 t cumin
1/2 t onion powder
1/2 t chili powder
1/2 t cayenne (use less if you don't want it as spicy)
diced tomato
2-3 c homemade chicken broth
1/4 c fresh chopped cilantro (optional)

  1. Preheat pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Add garlic, and cook for 3-5 minutes. (Heat until you see little bubbles around the garlic.)

  4. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, and onion powder, cumin, chili powder, cayenne.
  5. Bring to a boil.
  6. Reduce heat to a simmer, and add chicken.
  7. Simmer for 20 minutes.

Easy Homemade Broth 

100g chicken (you can add more chicken - you just need to track your portions)
onion powder
bay leaf
black pepper

  1. Fill saucepan 3/4 full with water.
  2. Bring to boil.
  3. Add chicken and seasonings.
  4. Boil for 20 mins.
  5. Remove boiled chicken & serve or refrigerate and save for later.
  6. Strain out bay leaf & seasonings.
  7. Let broth cool to room temperature.
  8. Skim fat off surface (if any).
  9. Refrigerate broth.
  10. Once cold, skim the rest of the fat from the top (if any).
  11. Store in refrigerator or freeze for later use.

TIP: You can add on-protocol veggies such as 3-4 stalks celery (I usually add the trimmings that I don't eat) and 1 onion for more flavor - just be sure to strain them at the end. You can also choose to omit the chicken altogether and just use the celery and onion with the seasonings for a simple veggie broth. OR add your steak trimmings that you've inevitably had to trim from your steaks and add to the broth for a beef broth.

TIP2: I usually freeze the broth in ice cube trays after cooling and skimming all fat. Then after they freeze, I place the cubes of broth in a freezer bag. This makes for easy use when 'frying' up shrimp, chicken, etc. Just toss a broth cube into a pan and let it melt then add your meat, etc. It adds flavor and keeps food from sticking.
