Tip: Save the broth you cooked the chicken in to use when making gravy, rice, or freeze for
Tip: To cook the chicken (for this and other recipes that call for cooked chicken), put about 3 boneless, skinless breasts, about 1-1/2 lb, in a shallow skillet, add water to just cover, about 2 C, add salt, some chopped celery tops, if you have them. Cover and simmer about 30 minutes, or until cooked through. You can also use leftover meat from a roast chicken.
