It makes me happy when my children enjoy eating things that are good for them. This recipe for chicken pot pie soup is no exception. First, the recipe. Then, a video review from my 6 year old.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

(link to original recipe from skinnytaste.com)

POINTS Plus: 6
Serving Size: 1.5 cups
Servings: 6

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 onion, chopped
8 oz sliced baby portabella mushrooms
2 chicken bouillons
fresh ground pepper
pinch of thyme
10 oz frozen classic mixed veggies (peas, carrots, green beans, corn)
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed small
16 oz cooked chicken breast, diced small
salt


Create a slurry by combining 1/2 cup of the cold water with flour (or cornstarch) 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 bouillon, thyme, fresh pepper, frozen veggies 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.
