  1. I boiled 2 chicken thighs to make the broth. I then set the thighs aside to cool a little. I also cut real bacon into small pieces and cooked it in a skillet then added the onions and cooked until onions were translucent and added the diced, cooked chicken meat to the skillet for a few minutes. It added some nice flavor.

  2. I boiled three chicken broth cubs w/ 3 cups of water. I used the velveeta scalloped potato’s and boiled them in water then added 1 cup of milk and my broth. Im letting it come to a boil and then going to simmer for 10 min until potatos are tender. Then I will add my velveeta cheese and bacon bits and prob add green beans and carrots sound sooo yummy!
