Healthy Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Submitted by: IDREAM0FJEANNIE

Introduction

On a chilly autumn day, I wanted some comfort food, and the first thing that came to mind was Chicken Pot Pie. However, since I have wheat and dairy allergies and want to maintain my weight, I knew that wasn't a healthy idea for me. So, I made this deliciously creamy, healthy, and tasty soup. Feel free to adjust it as you desire! On a chilly autumn day, I wanted some comfort food, and the first thing that came to mind was Chicken Pot Pie.

Ingredients

    2 Chicken Thighs (skinless, bone-in)
    1 Chicken Breast (Boneless, skinless)
    2 cups rough-chopped Potatoes (skin on, I prefer red potatoes)
    1 cup chopped Carrots divided
    3/4 cups frozen Peas
    1 cup Plain Soymilk (optional, for added creaminess and flavor)
    4-5 cups Water
    Salt
    Fresh Black Pepper

Directions

Place the chicken in a pot, add water until the water level is about 1" above the chicken, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil, and let simmer for 10 minutes before adding the potatoes and 1/2 cup of carrots. Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from pot. Put the cooked potatoes and carrots that are in the pot in a food processor or blender. Add liquid from the pan until the veggies are covered with the broth. Puree until smooth (no clumps, potato skins will still be visible) adding either soymilk or remaining broth from the pan as needed. Put the puree back into the pan, stir to combine with any left over broth. Add peas to pot. Shred the chicken, removing bones. Add to pot. Add soymilk until the soup reaches a thickness like other creamy soups (will be rather thick, though, because of the shredded chicken). Turn the burner on low to heat everything through, and serve with crusty bread.

The cook time for this recipe varies, so I recommend experimenting with it. However, it is very forgiving and reheats very well. The amount of servings depends on how much soymilk you add to the soup and if this is served accompanying a meal or on its own. However, you will likely get around 8 1-cup servings.

    I think I just found the answer to my own question. I just noticed the "8 1-cup servings" information. That would mean a single serving would be approximately 103 calories. That makes much more sense. This sounds really good; I will definitely try it.

  • This is a great recipe! I am not able to do milk so this was so creamy and delicious to me. I made some modifications. I used chicken broth instead of water and two chicken breasts instead of the thighs. I also added some onions which added a nice flavor. Thank you so much! :) - 11/13/11

    I believe by just looking at the ingredients that you can tell its the caloric of the soup as a whole, not per serving - 1/27/09

    Can this be right, what is it that makes the calories so high is it the dish as a whole or per serving. - 1/15/09
