Ingredients

4 cans (14.5 oz. each) reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
5 quarter-size slices fresh ginger
2 large garlic cloves
1 pound boned, skinned chicken breast halves, cut into large chunks

Preparation

1. Bring 3 cans broth to a boil in a pot with ginger and garlic. Add chicken, cover, and remove from heat. Let sit, stirring occasionally, until chicken is cooked, 15 minutes.

2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer chicken to a serving bowl. Add remaining 1 can broth to pot and bring to a boil. Serve broth and chicken in separate bowls.

Make ahead: Up to 1 day. Bring all broth to a boil with chicken, then remove chicken and chill separately from broth.
