4 split (2 whole) chicken breasts, bone in, skin on
3 Tablespoons olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 cups chopped onions (~ 2 onions)
1 cup chopped celery (~ 2 stalks)
2 cups chopped carrots (~ 4 carrots)
4 large cloves garlic, chopped
2 1/2 quarts (10 cups) chicken stock

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place the chicken breasts skin side up on a sheet pan. Rub with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and

discard the skin and bones, and shred the meat. Cover and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat 3 T olive oil in a large pot. Add onions, celery, and carrots and cook over medium-low
heat for 10 minutes, or until the onions start to brown. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add chicken
stock, tomatoes with their puree, jalapenos, cumin, coriander, 1 T salt (depending on saltiness of the chicken stock), 1 tsp. pepper, and cilantro, if using.
Cut tortillas in 1/2, then cut them crosswise into 1/2-inch strips and add to the soup. Bring the soup to a
boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 25 minutes. Add the shredded chicken and season to taste.
Serve the soup hot topped with sliced avocado, a dollop of sour cream, grated cheddar cheese, and broken
tortilla chips.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock (chicken stock may be substituted)
2 cups fat-free half-and-half (regular half-and-half may be substituted; whole milk or 2% milk will

and set pan aside.
In a large heavy-bottom pot add 4 tablespoons butter, flour, and cook over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes, whisking
constantly, until flour is thickened. Slowly add the vegetable stock, whisking constantly. Slowly add the half-and-half, whisking constantly.
Allow mixture to simmer over low heat for about 15 to 20 minutes, whisking intermittently. Add broccoli, carrots, onion and
