Ingredients

2 teaspoons vegetable oil 
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup diced or grated carrot 
2 ½ cups low-sodium chicken broth 
1 cup diced potato (fresh or frozen)
½ teaspoon thyme
½ teaspoon garlic powder 
¼ teaspoon salt 
½ cup (4 ounces) cooked and diced chicken
½ cup low-fat or nonfat milk
1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon red wine vinegar (optional)
pepper to taste (optional)

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. In a medium saucepan, sauté onion and carrot on medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add broth, potato, thyme, garlic powder and salt. Bring to a gentle boil and simmer until the potatoes are soft, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. While potatoes are cooking, stir flour and milk together in a small dish.
  5. Add chicken to the saucepan and stir 1 to 2 minutes until heated through.
  6. Slowly add milk mixture and stir as the soup thickens. Boil gently for 2 to 3 minutes.
  7. Before serving, add vinegar and pepper, if desired.
  8. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Substitute the diced carrot with any combination of carrot, celery, pepper or leek.
  • Substitute other vegetables such as corn or broccoli for half of the potatoes.
