Chicken and Vegetable Soup

This is one of my favorite go-to soups. I love having it on-hand in the freezer in case I feel sick. Consider yourself warned, though – this recipe produces a lot of soup (about 3-4 large Tupperware for freezing). You can easily reduce the recipe by only making one Roast Sticky Chicken, but I enjoy cooking in bulk, []

Raw Coconut Nut Bars
