Cream of Broccoli and Chicken Soup
1 T Olive Oil
1 onion, chopped
8 oz neufchatel cream cheese
1 14.5 oz can chicken broth
3 cups broccoli, chopped
1 cup low fat cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup cooked chicken, chopped
2/3 cup fat free half and half
In large saucepan, heat oil and add onions. Cook until translucent. Add broth and heat until boiling, stirring. Add chicken and broccoli; cook until broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes. Add cheeses and half and half. Reduce heat and cook another minute, stirring, to melt and incorporate cheese.
Note: I have used fat free evaporated milk in place of the half and half.
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.
