Chicken Pot Pie Soup

We tried a new soup for lunch.

Peighton gave it "5 thumbs up."
It was pretty good!
And it didn't have all the fat and calories of a real pot pie because there was no crust.

I got the recipe from Skinny Taste.
There are LOTS more recipes on there that I plan to try!

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

  • 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, add salt and pepper to taste.
