We preferred kosher chicken broth in this soup because it imparts a deep, rich flavor, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand. Kosher chicken broth is relatively available in most grocery stores in the kosher or Jewish food aisle. You may need to find kosher chicken breasts from a kosher butcher or grocer. However, both products are available online.
