This soup is easy to prepare. I like to season the chicken breast with lemon pepper and then poach it in med-low until super tender. Next, I use the poached broth in the soup, as well as some purchased commercially for a complexity of flavors.

HACK: You can see a simpler process to make it in my last slide; after poaching and cubed the chicken, you can add all other ingredients and cook for 10 minutes. Done.
Also, If you have leftover Multi-Grain Angel Hair pasta, just put it in a small ziplog bag, seal it and freeze it for another dish during the week.
