Healthy Chicken Soup Recipe

Healthy-Chicken-Soup-2

Your grandmother was right, chicken soup and bedrest really can cure almost anything. The next time someone you love is feeling under the weather, try our healthy recipe for this long time favorite.

It has all the things you'd expect to find in traditional chicken noodle soup, but we've lightened it up so you can have that second bowl without feeling guilty. We packed this healthy recipe with lots of fresh vegetables, so it's not heavy or greasy. If you want to make the soup even more figure friendly, use all white meat chicken.

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, minced
1/2 cup carrots, diced
1/2 cup celery, sliced
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano flakes
3 cups chicken broth, reduced sodium
2 cups potatoes, peeled, diced
1 1/4 cup chicken, cooked, chopped
1/2 cup whole milk
1 cup noodles, yolk-free, enriched, uncooked

Directions:

1. Heat oil over medium heat in large sauce pan. Add minced onions, carrots, celery, and garlic powder. Cook until onions are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes.

2. Sprinkle flour and oregano over vegetables; cook about 1 minute.

3. Stir in chicken broth and potatoes. Cover and cook until tender, about 20 minutes.

4. Add chicken, milk, and noodles. Cover and simmer until noodles are tender, about 10 minutes.
