7. After 30 min, remove chicken breasts to cutting board or plate, cover loosely, and allow to cool.
8. Leave pot uncovered and continue cooking soup for 30 more minutes (this will reduce soup slightly and improve flavor)

My father helped me restore an old wooden boat when I was in Junior High School, then taught me how to sail it. I was hooked forever. The other gift he provided was a love of cooking, which I've tried to build upon over the years. I've spent most of my life owning a boat of some kind or another from dinghy's to larger sailing and motor vessels. I enjoy sharing my love of water and my love of cooking with fellow travelers who have a like-mindedness. I believe life is difficult enough, so why not help lift others up whenever possible; share a smile and a good story every now and then.
