Sure it comes in a can; along
with other ingredients that one can't pronounce. When having a fresh roasted or
baked chicken, choose one that has all the parts and make your own broth. Use it as
a light lunch accompaniment to your sandwiches or add leftover chicken and veggies for a
light, wonderful soup. Enjoy!
