Mexican Chicken Soup

You can hardly find a 3-3 1/2 lb. chicken any more so go with what you can find.If you double the recipe, don't double the bouillon granules as it might make it too salty. Taste to test. I usually add more zucchini. I also use canned chopped tomatoes, and sometimes add more than 1 can.
