Vegetable Manchow Soup with Chicken 

An extremely quick and simple soup to make. Omit chicken and chicken stock and replace with vegetable stock for the vegetarian version. Since a very small amount of chicken is used, I often remove this portion from chicken breasts that have been cooked for another dish.
