Place chicken broth and chopped chicken in a dutch oven, bring to a boil. Chop vegetables and ad the pot continuing to a boil. Add salt and pepper. Remember chicken stock already has salt in it so add a bit then taste. As the soup boils it will also reduce bringing out the salt.
Add the minced garlic. Add any seasonings at this point to either add flavor or spiciness.
Remember that fresh seasonings may get stronger as they are canned. The soup is now complete and can be ladled into hot jars leaving 1 inch head space.
Note: Do not add starch or dairy products to the soup before putting them in jars. When you are ready to open the jar you can be creative!
