An easy slow cooker soup. It’s chicken, veggies and tomatoes with an Italian flair. A healthy soup for all diets but good enough for the first course of that fancy Italian meal. But the real plus is the taste and ease of this soup.
We are starting some pre-holiday dieting. How well it will go is unknown, but this is a great start. At about 65 calories per cup, less than 1 gram of fat, and about 5 grams of countable carbs it’s good for both a low fat and low carb diets. Plus you get lots of veggies.
Very good and you won’t even think you’re on a diet.
Trim and cube 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of skinless boneless chicken breast.
Clean and chop one large onion, four stalks of celery (you may include the celery leafs if you want), and four medium carrots.
Combine chicken and veggies with 1 tablespoon minced garlic, three cans chicken broth, 1 can diced tomatoes, one 6 oz can tomato paste, 1 t oregano, 1/2 t thyme, 1 t salt, 1/2 t pepper and 1 pound frozen green beans.
Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
