1/4 cup flour (to make gluten-free use 2 tbsp cornstarch instead)
2 cups water
4 cups fat free milk
1 large celery stalk, chopped
1/2 medium chopped onion
8 oz sliced baby portabella mushrooms
2 chicken bouillons
fresh ground pepper
pinch of thyme
10 oz frozen classic mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, green beans, corn)
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed small
16 oz cooked chicken breast, diced small
Directions: Create a slurry by combining 1/2 cup of the cold water with flour in a medium bowl and whisk until well blended. Set aside.
Pour remaining water and milk into a large pot and slowly bring to a boil. Add celery, onion, mushrooms, chicken bullion, thyme, fresh pepper, frozen vegetables and return to a boil. Partially cover and simmer on low until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes. Remove lid, add potatoes and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add chicken, and slowly whisk in slurry, stirring well as you add. Cook another 2-3 minutes, until soup thickens, adjust salt and pepper to taste and serve.
-I used whole wheat flour.
-I did not use the celery.
-I added 1/4 cup chicken broth.
-I added 3-4 lasagna pieces cut up.
What a perfect, easy meal for a cool Fall day. If you stick to the original recipe, 1 cup of this soup=6 points on the new Weight Watchers system. Since I added 1/4 cup of chicken stock and some pasta, I'm sure it is another point.
I'm really happy that I added the pasta to this dish and actually wish I would have added more. The pasta simulated the pie shell topping that is on a traditional pot pie and added an extra bit of comfort.
I used chicken breast tenderloins that I boiled but this dish can be made even easier by using a rotisserie chicken.
Scott had a good point when he said that it almost reminded him of a potato soup, like this one.
Hope you enjoy!
