Simply Chicken Soup

Wash chicken breasts and place in large stock pot.  Cover with cold water. Add Kosher salt. Bring to a simmer and cook chicken thoroughly.  Set cooked chicken breasts aside.

Strain broth and add to a clean large stockpot. Add chopped onions, celery, carrots and leeks.  Simmer until vegetables are at desired texture.

At this point, soup can be customized however you prefer.
For a simple soup, Add cooked chicken, grated fresh ginger, chopped parsley, a few sprigs of dill and kosher salt and pepper to taste. I also like adding fresh greens, spinach or escarole are favorites.  If using kale, I prefer to chop it finely.  Chopped fennel also adds a fresh flavor.
For a hearty meal, add any separately cooked pasta or grain. Serve with a mixed green salad and baguette for a simply delicious winter supper.
