Chicken Soup (Canja)

"Canja de galinha" is a typical Brazilian soup.
It gives you strength when you have a cold or when you are recovering from a cold.


-Instead of chicken breast, you can use any chicken part that you want.
-Three pieces of chicken parts are enough for this recipe.
-To remove the skin of the tomato, make a cross with a sharp knife at the bottom of the tomato and put the tomato in boiling water for some seconds. The skin will begin to split around the cross and it can be easily removed.
