Prep-Ahead (this entire soup can be made in advance!!! Woo hoo!!!)

  1. Cut the raw Chicken into 2-inch pieces.  Add 5 cups of water with 2 bouillon cubes, plus 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp fresh ground pepper to medium size pot.  Bring to a boil and then add the chicken.  Boil for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.  Remove from the heat and let cool.

  2. While the chicken is cooking, peel and dice the carrots.

  3. When the chicken is done, remove it from the broth and set aside to cool enough to shred.  When the chicken has cooled, shred it into bite-size pieces with your fingers or two forks.
