Colleen's low-fat Chicken Noodle Soup

Submitted by: CMKOBE

Introduction

Good heart-warming, chunky, low-cal and low-fat. Good heart-warming, chunky, low-cal and low-fat.
Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    Chicken, celery, carrots, onions, garlic, noodles, water, bouillon.

Directions

Makes 10 servings (at least); very generous 10-oz soup bowl servings.

I use a pressure cooker but any 4-qt pot with a tight-fitting lid will do. It is VERY easy. I use about 4-5 servings of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They can be any size, but about 19-20 ounces in total. I even use them frozen usually. Add salt, pepper, minced garlic, and your chunked vegetables.

I use baby carrots and put about half a pound in. I use one very large yellow onion in big chunks. I use five large stalks of celery in big chunks. Very easy to prepare and satisfying to eat.

Throw all of that in the pressure cooker or 4-qt pot with a box of low-fat low-sodium chicken broth. It will bring the liquid about two inches from the top.

Then boil it until carrots are tender. In a pressure cooker it takes 5 minutes. As soon as veggies are tender; add 3 cups (about 4.5 ounces) of these noodles and fill to the top with water. Depending on how much water you added, add a chicken bouillon or two or three to give it more chicken flavor but if you do that don't add any more salt.

Bring it to a boil again, and then turn off and let sit for a few minutes.

Yum. Prep time is about 10 minutes, all together maybe an hour if you don't have a pressure cooker or about half an hour if you do.

Number of Servings: 10
