That soup sounds good. I also had a big turkey breast lying around, and decided to make Caldo de Pollo (Mexican Chicken Soup --but with turkey). It goes like this and makes a huge pot:

4 cups chicken stock and 2 cups water

One parsnip, chopped small (this gives the broth a sweetness and is my secret ingredient)

Enough carrots to look right (!) - maybe 4, cut into medallions

One large potato, large dice

Turkey breast (or whatever chicken you have around)

One can of kernel corn

One bunch of cilantro (add at the last minute)

I sweat the veggies, then add the other ingredients (except cilantro) and let the turkey breast poach for however long it takes. Add sage, rosemary, bay leaf, salt to taste while it poaches.

Then I remove the turkey breast and roughly chop into largish pieces; return to pot.

Stir in the cilantro right before ready to serve

Put tortilla chips in bowls and ladle the soup over them.


Typing this out I realize how imprecise it is, but if you try it I think it'll work 😉
