Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Fall is here!  And nothing is better than a warm cup of soup on the first cold fall day.  Chicken Pot pie is a weakness of mine so when I found a healthy version of this delicious comfort food I pounced at the chance to make it.  My favorite part of this soup was having the freedom to fill it with as many veggies as I could imagine.

  • 1/4 cup flour (to make gluten-free use 2 tbsp cornstarch instead)
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 cupss skim milk
  • 2 large celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 10 oz sliced baby portabella mushrooms
  • 3 chicken bouillons cubes
  • pinch of thyme
  • 10 oz frozen classic mixed vegetables
  • 1 potato,  cubed small
  • 1 yam, cubed small
  • 16 oz cooked chicken breast, diced small

Directions

Combine 1/2 cup of the cold water with flour in a medium bowl and whisk until well blended. Put to the side.

Pour remaining water, 1 1/2 c, and milk into a large pot – slowly bring to a boil. Add celery, onion, mushrooms, chicken bullion, thyme, fresh pepper, frozen vegetables and return to a boil. Partially cover and simmer until vegetables are soft, approximately 20 minutes. Add chopped potatoes and yams let simmer for 5 minutes. Add chicken, and slowly whisk in flour mixture.  Allow soup to thicken by allowing it to cook a few more minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
