Recipe Notes

In my pictured ingredients you'll see a can of diced tomatoes, which I was thinking of adding. However, I decided to keep it more of a clear white soup, and saved my tomatoes for another soup.  You can add them if you like and of course it will be delicious.  You can also add some leftover chicken, to make it even heartier.
