This was served at a friend’s house & we enjoyed it. My wife & I changed some of the ingredients to improve it to our tastes. Everyone we have served it to has since begged for the recipe, as it is so good. This is a one bowl meal, easy to fix & hearty enough for any appitite. A real “crowd pleaser”.

InstructionsCook chicken; debone and reserve meet. In a stockpot, saute onion and jalapeno in margarine until tender. Add next twelve ingredients (plus chicken) and simmer for 1 hour.

I use all salt-free broths. Also this recipe is only a gauge for you to work with. Feel free to experiment with more and other veggies.
