    Did not use Chicken Breast, but instead use a more favorable meat the Boned Chicken Thighs. Besides So far this year I have able to purchase chicken quarters at 27 cent a pound. which leave me the drumsticks and the bones from the thighs to make stock. A frugal Cook.

    When it comes to “1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules” does that mean prepared? Can I substitute chicken broth instead? How much would I use if so?

      Hi, 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules dissolved in 1 cup of boiling water may be substituted for 1 cup (250 ml) of chicken broth in this recipe.
