Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve, peel, and medium dice the onion. Peel the carrots; quarter lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the celery lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Combine in a bowl.

2 Cook the chicken & vegetables:

Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large, high-sided pan (or pot), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer and cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the prepared vegetables; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until the vegetables are softened and the chicken is cooked through. Add the broth (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), up to half the spice blend (you will have extra), and 1/2 cup of water; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until combined.
