Enjoy the delights of a comforting bowl of Chicken Pot Pie minus its traditional calorie loaded servings.  By ditching the buttery crust and using a few simple substitutions, you're going to love how easy it is to lighten up this classic dish.  

Chicken Pot Pie Soup
Total Time: 1 hour
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 50 minutes

What you'll need
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 sweet or white onion, diced
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite size pieces
salt and pepper
1 large carrot, sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup 
1 cup reduced-sodium chicken stock 
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup frozen peas
1/2 cup frozen corn

1. In a medium Dutch oven or pot, saute butter, onion and chicken over medium heat until chicken is browned, about 5 minutes. 
2. Add carrot and celery to the pot.  Continue to cook for 2 to 3 minutes. 
3. Meanwhile, mix cream of chicken soup, chicken stock, ground cumin and milk in a separate mixing bowl.  Stir until evenly mixed.  
4. Add soup and broth mixture to the pot and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low; cover and cook for 40 minutes or until carrots and celery are tender. 
5. Stir in peas and corn just before serving.  Heat for an additional 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
6. Serve and enjoy!

Looks wonderful! The filling is the best part anyway....I always leave most of the crust, so why bother with it? Very nice recipe!

Chicken pot pie soup - so interesting! I came across your blog recently and love the idea of converting recipes into portion sizes for two. The other day the blog TandTeaCake passed the Liebster blog award on to me and now my job is to pass it on to 5 other food blogs - and I choose yours! Check out me post here http://avocadopesto.wordpress.com/2012/02/23/creme-fraiche-cheesecake-with-blueberry-topping/ to read all about it!
