I doubled the recipe to eat this every day...it's so yummy! I did get help from my mom on timing so this is what she suggested...1. Cover chicken with water to boil about 20-30 min (my mom likes to use drumsticks because of the flavor of the bone and I like thighs for extra chicken) 2. Add the seasoning(salt, pepper, and knorr), bay leaf, onion, celery, corn, and large jalapeno (she takes out in the end but I keep for spice) then simmer for 20-30 min 3. Add potatoes and carrots and cook for another 20-30 min 4. Last 10 min of cooking add cabbage, squash/chayote, and more salt/pepper *As a preference my kids like me to mix in spanish rice and serve with rolled tortillas and crema (sour cream)...Delish :)

Big help! I went ahead and added rice. Instead of the drumstick I used premarinated boneless skinless thighs. So good!!

Excellent! My husband said this tastes like the resturant quality caldo! I couldn't find chayotes at the grocery store, so I left them out, and I used boneless chicken breasts, and Knorr caldo de pollo boullion. Very delicious! Thanks for sharing!
