These cold wintery days call for comfort food, don't you think?
I was in Tim Horton's recently and on an overhead monitor an image flashed of something that looked like a bowl of Cream of Chicken Soup with chunks of chicken, vegetables and egg noodles in it.
I was suddenly very hungry for it, so I went home and recreated it.
And is it good!
I called it "Chicken Pot Pie Soup".
Then I searched for it on Pinterest and I found lots of recipes for it, wouldn't you know it.
There's nothing original about me!
The base of mine was not overly thick and creamy.
I used chicken breast, fresh carrots, peas, onions, celery, whole wheat noodles, my own chicken stock and 1% milk in it.
To make it a quick meal, you can use cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup as your base. I used cream of chicken soup.
Or you can make your own base like this person did from Skinnytaste.com.
This does not have to be a calorie laden soup.
The recipe from Skinnytaste only has 169.2 calories in a cup of it.
Save the calories for the biscuits that you make to go with it.
I did not capture a photo of mine.
They disappeared too quickly!
This is my new favourite comfort food.
What is your favourite comfort food?
I would love to hear about it!
Have a wonderful beginning of your week,
I hope you folks on the East Coast of Canada and the USA have dug yourselves out.
I do not envy you all of that snow.
I won't leave you with a snow photo, some of you have seen way too much of that this weekend already!
