Harvest Chicken Soup

 Harvest Chicken Soup
I like reading cookbooks and finding new twists to traditional recipe. This hearty soup is made with a colorful and tasty mix of vegetables and avocados. Spending time in the kitchen has kept me busy after retiring some years ago.—Bob & Georgia Crabb, Scio, Oregon
