BUSH'S® White Chicken Chili

Northup Park - Wolcott

Spent the day in Wolcott and helping Bradley prepare the basement for a new furnace. Since the temperature had dipped, Joan downloaded this recipe from Bush Brothers & Company. This excellent dish was a welcome surprise after working underground all day. Oh! Did I mention hitting my head several times of the make-do Bilco door entry.

1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
1 1/2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken breast
