P2 Chicken Soup - Comfort Food!

Whether it's cold outside, you aren't feeling 100%, or you just want some good ole comfort food, it's hard to beat homemade chicken soup! This is an easy one to make in bulk so you have some meals ready to go in the fridge or freezer.

Chicken Soup

3.5 oz Chicken Breast, diced
1/2 cup Celery, sliced
1/2 small Onion, diced
1 cup fat-free Chicken Broth
Water, to taste
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Basil
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder

(you can add any seasonings you like - try Bragg's, Chili Powder, Tobasco, etc. and let me know what you liked best!)

Heat chicken broth in sauce pan.  Add onion and celery and cook for about 5 minutes.  Add seasonings and chicken, let simmer until chicken is done.  Taste and add water as needed until it's just right.

I quadrupled this recipe so I have 3 more meals ready to heat.  I ordered a bulk package of gladware containers - these for meals like this, and some smaller ones for freezing meat portions.

Quick question, I see you mince an onion on a lot of your recipes but then you have another veggie that you count as your 1 veggie. Can you explain how this works & is ok? I would love to know I can mince an onion and not have it count for my 1 veggie!

I don't count onion and garlic as veggies, but as spices. It worked fine for me and many others I know, but as always, be cautious at first and make sure it doesn't affect you before doing it regularly. :)

I add chopped cabbage and cayenne pepper. It works for me that way, it has never caused a slow down. I have also used left over grilled chicken with lemon pepper before, it added more flavor.

Did you make your own broth? I've checked a lot of broths, and they all seem to have sugar listed on the ingredients. I'm sure it isn't much, but just wondered what you used.

Lianne said...

Hi! I didn't on P2, no, because I wanted the least amount of fat on P2. I used Swanson broth and in the large carton it lists 1g of sugar but it isn't in the ingredients, so I think it must be from some of the veggies used to make the broth. I'm ok with it. As long as sugar isn't listed at all in the ingredients I feel ok about using shortcuts (of course monitoring to make sure they don't cause a gain).

Can you substitute the chicken with lean grass feed beef like a stew?

quick question: how do you equally seperate them into 2 or 3 servings ? I feel like my meat portions are all of when I seperate. Today I made beef chili and I thought I halved it but when I was packing my lunch for the other half, seemed like there was a lot more beef in it. I added green peppers in it too. Do you just eye ball it ?

I made this recipe tonight. I used an eight ounce carton of no salt no fat chicken broth and added about 6oz of water. 2 cups of cabbage and spices and 3.5 oz chicken. I hope I don't slow down I have been doing so good. They soup was delicious!! Your recipes are the bomb!! Do you have a website??
