Chicken

Organic Chicken is an excellent source of protein. Contains vitamin B3, selenium, vitamin B6, phosphorous and tryptophan. Chicken is a good source of the cancer-protective B vitamin niacin. A 4 ounce serving of organic chicken provides 72% of the daily value for niacin. Chicken is also a good source of the trace mineral selenium, important in antioxidant defense systems and immune function. For Sunday Set-Up™ I boil 6-8 organic chicken breasts. In a large soup pot, fill with a box of low sodium chicken broth and 4 more cups of water. Begin to heat over a medium heat. Add in a few whole garlic cloves or tablespoon of chopped garlic and all the chicken. Boil until the chicken is white. Take one out and cut in half, when cooked through remove all the chicken. Let cool on a plate and then place in 6-cup glass container whole or cut into strips. Before tossing the broth that you cooked the chicken in, decide if a soup is in your plan for the week. The broth is the great start to a delicious vegetable soup. If you boil more chicken breasts than you will use, you can freeze them individually and pull them out and place them in the refrigerator to thaw. Keeping the boiled chicken breasts in the fridge will last 3-4 days.
