I sautéed chicken breast pieces thinly sliced and gently pounded before slicing in olive oil and butter. Added one finely chopped onion after the chicken was cooked. Added 3 or so cups of chicken broth. Added a bowl of beans and a bowl of brown basmati rice, cooked. Added the rest of the ingredients in the cast iron Dutch oven all of this was cooked in and simmered until we were ready to eat.
Braxton went wild over a bowl of rice with the broth from the soup poured over it and some French bread! He went on and on and on about it;)
