Skinnylightful Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Print

chcken-pot-pie-soup-1

A big bowl of delicious comfort food. This soup is much lighter than a traditional pot pie but has all the yumminess! Each serving is hearty enough for dinner. It’s loaded with chicken, potatoes and assorted veggies. You can serve it with baked biscuits on the side, if desired and a salad. One main course bowl has 260 calories, 3 grams of fat and only 2 Blue WW Freestyle SmartPoints.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes


Ingredients

4 cups (32 oz container) Swanson’s reduced-sodium chicken broth or your favorite

2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed (½ inch cubes)

1½ cups onions, chopped

4 cups frozen mixed vegetables, not defrosted (most include peas, carrots, green beans and corn)

3 cups (12 ounces) cooked chicken, diced

1¼ teaspoon dried thyme

¼ teaspoon salt or to taste

Black pepper, to taste

1½ cup reduced-fat milk (2%)

3 tablespoons cornstarch or 2 tablespoons flour


Instructions

1. In a large pot, add the chicken broth, potatoes and onions. Bring to a boil. Reduced heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

2. Stir in frozen vegetables and break up the frozen pieces, if necessary. Add the chicken, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 5 minutes.

3. In a separate small bowl, add cornstarch or flour. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk, until well blended. Keep mixing until the cornstarch or flour is completely dissolved.

4. Increase the soup heat to medium. Using a rubber spatula or wooden soup, so you don’t smash the potatoes, stir in milk/cornstarch mixture. Continue to cook, uncovered, for about 5 minutes, to thicken. Stir often using the rubber spatula or wooden spoon. If it starts to boil, turn heat down to simmer.

Makes 6 main course servings. Each serving 1¾ cups.


Shopping Tips

Serve with 1 pkg. Pillsbury Golden Layer Flaky Biscuits (100 calories for each biscuit), if desired. Most supermarkets sell these in the refrigerated section where other dough is sold. Baked them while the soup is cooking.


Storage Tips

If you’re cooking for one or two people, don’t let this stop you from making this wonderful soup. It freezes great. Divide the leftovers into single serving containers and freeze.
