I just love this recipe. It’s creamy and despite having no crust it’s still filling and satisfying. Who doesn’t love easy, one pot meals? It’s another great recipe from Gina over atSkinnyTaste.com. This recipe can be made gluten-free too!
Since I am following Weight Watchers, I like using my points wisely and stretching them out A LOT. (I’ve lost nearly 20 lbs. ) But I love comfort food like chicken pot pie like everyone else. So I just had to try this lightened up soup.
Coincidentally, I am currently giving away some Blake’s Chicken pot pies (giveaway ends on 6/21). Grant loves these, but I am resisting the temptation. Just to compare, one serving of Blake’s is 10 PointsPlus for one cup and one serving of this chicken pot pie soup is 6 PointsPlus for 1 bowl. For those counting calories, the nutritional info. is includes below the recipe.
