Betty’s 5-Minute Diet Chicken and Vegetable Soup Recipe

| February 6, 2013 | 25 Comments

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her 5-Minute Diet Chicken and Vegetable Soup. The soup is hearty and delicious and will serve about 4 people. It is also very quick and easy for those of you who are trying to diet on the go! The version of soup that I made has 450 calories, so one serving has slightly over 100 calories. If you need a double serving, it will be only 225 calories. Remember, this is a complete meal, and you should not add crackers, croutons, etc., if you are using it for diet purposes. Your soup may have a different number of calories, depending on the brands of ingredients you use, but it should be close to 450 total. Just look on each container for the number of calories, and add them all up! (Cornstarch has 30 calories per tablespoon, so you may want to go light on that.) Ingredients: 14.5-oz. can chicken broth 1 ½ to 2 tablespoons cornstarch 10 oz. can chunk white chicken breast in broth, undrained 15 oz. can mixed vegetables, drained (I used Veg-All.) Freshly ground black pepper for top of soup In a medium pot, dissolve 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch in a 14.5-oz. can of chicken broth. Add a 10-oz. can of chunk white chicken breast, undrained, and a 15-oz. can of mixed vegetables, drained. Stir all together, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir occasionally, until soup is thickened and bubbly—about 5 minutes. Ladle desired amount into a soup bowl. Top with freshly ground black pepper, and serve immediately! Scrumptious, filling

    I finally got around to making this. The only thing I did differently was to use leftover chicken. This is a good, quick, and easy recipe. I’ll be making this again, that’s for sure!

    I am really not certain if it is the proper fat loss diet regime for any person, but DietOramy fat loss diet regime surely helps my mom eliminate all of that excess fat deposits. There is plenty free info on the web about that, just use Google…

    Very intrigued by this video honestly! I want to make this for my sister but I was wondering if there is any alternative to corn starch since my sister is allergic, she can’t have it. Do you know if corn starch is really needed in the mixture or know of any alternative?

  10. bettyskitchen says:

    Yes, that’s a great idea! Use mainly vegetables, limiting potatoes, pasta, rice, etc.
    –Betty  :)

    I will be starting my diet soon, and I’m going to use this recipe, looks great. I have a question, can I add other vegetables, like broccoli, cabbage, and couple slice of potatoes? Not all at once but some days I’ll alternate broccoli or cabbage but keeping the original recipe. And thanks for the recipe I hit jackpot when I found it.

  12. ThePinkMyth says:

    I will have to try that! Thank you!

    Thanks for your great comment! If you like chili, I have a nice vegetable chili.
    –Betty :)

  14. ThePinkMyth says:

    This came out perfectly! Thank you again, Betty! I need nice warm recipes to get me through the fall and winter while still watching calories. Something about a warm meal is so much more satisfying than a cold one.

    Hi Betty,
    You must know by now that you’re the absolute best!!!!
    If you don’t know it, I can assure you, your fans do.
    I’m a fan, and I made this soup tonight (with a small variation, I added some stewed tomatoes). Verdict: FANTASTIC. Loved your channel from day 1 and have been
    a fan since, well, day 1. Take care, and all the best.

    Hi Todd! It’s so nice to hear from you! It’s chilly here in KY, too! I’m glad you are finding some warmth from the Chicken and Vegetable Soup.
    Sending my love,
    –Betty :)

    Hi Betty :) We got our first gusts of chilly air here in Pensacola last night. I put this together for my lunch today and it is AWESOME. This is definitely a go-to recipe. Thanks so much!
    Much love,
    Todd
