2 chicken breasts large (about 1 1/4 lb. total)
4 cups water

1 cup carrot diced
1 cup celery diced
1/2 cup onion chopped
2 tablespoons parsley chopped

Remove skin and pat chicken dry. In a 4-quart saucepot over high heat, bring chicken, water and bouillon granules to a boil. Skim foam from surface. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes or until tender. Remove chicken. Reserve broth. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove meat from bones and cut into small pieces (you should have about 1 1/4 cups). Set chicken aside. Strain broth. Add enough water to measure 5 cups liquid. Return liquid to saucepot.
