Chicken & Ginger Soup

Olive oil
3 small chicken breasts, cut into bite sized pieces
2 inch piece of fresh ginger, skinned and chopped
32 oz of low sodium chicken or vegetable stock
16oz can stewed tomatoes
16oz of water
2 cloves, fresh garlic, chopped
chopped fresh cilantro

pretty simple so far, eh?

In a medium sized pot, heat Olive Oil on Medium High heat and add chicken. Add it slowly so that the pot stays hot and cook, tossing gently every two to three minutes.
Once the chicken is looking grilled, add the garlic and ginger and cook for another 2 minutes.
Add a 1/4 cup of chicken or vegetable broth and scrape the bottom of the pot to loosen any cooked bits (to add flavor) and then add the rest of the broth. Bring to a boil and add the water and the tomatoes and let return to a boil and now reduce heat, add Cilantro and simmer.

Now you can add some thin oriental noodles or cooked rice to make this soup a little heartier and a little squeeze of lemon juice will just throw it over the top.
