Recipe: Caldo de Pollo

I was beginning to feel the onset of a sickness yesterday and to ward it off I decided to make Caldo de Pollo soup. I was first introduced to this soup when I was managing the Lents International Farmers Market in Portland, OR. Through out the year at the market we would have members of our community who had immigrated to Portland, come and share recipes from where they grew up. The day our 'chef in the market' made caldo de pollo it was especially rainy and cold and I was delighted when I tried this delicious soup. I was given a copy of the recipe, which I immediately lost, so here is what I came up with from memory. I was not disappointed.
