Chicken and Rice Soup

Makes 10 - approximately 1 1/2 cup servings.  

4 points plus each


Okay, so I know it's 90 degrees and 98% humidity today but I don't care.  I want soup.  I want something light, something bursting with flavor, something easy to make.   I want soup.  LOL

This was so easy.  I just went through my freezer and pantry to see what I had, a little prep and then threw it together in a pot.  The result was hugely flavorful, light but satisfying and super low in points.  Doesn't get any better than that!

Chicken and Rice Soup

  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 6 cups low sodium broth
  • 2 cups fresh (or 1 jar) mushrooms
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 1 med onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 can green beans
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain white rice (not instant)
  • 2 T Paula Deen's Poultry Seasoning
  • 2 chicken bullion cubes or equivalent powder
