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 and 3 grams of fat.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups Swanson’s reduced-sodium chicken broth or your favorite, (32 oz container)
  • 2 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed (½ inch cubes)
  • cups onions, chopped
  • 4 cups frozen mixed vegetables, not defrosted (most include peas, carrots, green beans and corn)
  • 3 cups cooked chicken, diced (12 ounces)
  • teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • cup reduced-fat milk (2%)
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch or 2 tablespoons flour

Instructions

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

Notes

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.
