Today's Feature Menu Item:
"Everything but the Kitchen Sink" Chicken Soup
I titled this homemade soup because you could put lots of different vegetables in it, if you wanted variety or depending what you had. I used all fresh vegetables, but you could use frozen or canned.
Saute in soup pot:
2 tsp grated garlic
3/4 c carrot chopped
3/4 c celery chopped
1/2 c sweet onion chopped
2 medium Idaho potatoes chopped
12 c FF chicken stock, bring to a boil
4 ounces mini-penne pasta and cook following the box directions
At about 2 minutes prior to pasta being done, toss in 6 ounces cooked chicken breast (chopped) and 1 cup chopped mushrooms.
Season with 1 TBSP dried parsley (fresh would be delicious, too) and pepper and salt to taste.
Servings: 5 large bowls
WW: 4 points each
1 individual FF strawberry yogurt container
1/2 c light cranberry juice
3/4 c chopped strawberries
1/2 c ice
Servings: (2) 8-ounce glasses
WW: 2 points each
Chicken Strawberry Salad Wraps
1 Wrap Up (I use La Tortilla Factory Smart & Healthy Wrap Ups, Traditional made with EVOO)
3 ounces of precooked chopped chicken breast (I used the precooked bag you find in deli section)
1/4 c chopped celery
3 ripe strawberries chopped
1 TBSP sliced almonds
3 TBSP miracle whip light
1 pinch of splenda
Wrap in wrap.
The wraps I mentioned I find at Meijers in the Mexican foods section. They are a bit pricey, but are well worth it. They are delicious and loaded with fiber. They are only 1 point a piece (8 inches, too). I use them for fajitas as well as wraps.
