Four recipes made – the final three

Pin It IMG_1572Easy  Chicken Noodle Soup
Super easy (hardest part was cutting up the veggies and chicken!).  Super good.  Had this for supper tonight and was amazed at how tasty it was given that I’d used the super low sodium broth to make it.  Another 5 star recipe!  I will post this recipe later (it’s not an online one – it came from my friend Margie).

UPDATE:  Here is the recipe for the Soup!

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup
PointsPlus™Value: 4
Servings: 6
2 tsp olive oil
2 stalk(s) celery, chopped (medium)
2 large carrot(s), chopped
3 clove(s) garlic clove(s), chopped (medium)
1 medium onion(s), chopped
1 tsp ground thyme
6 cup(s) fat-free, reduced-sodium chicken broth
12 oz Chicken, breast, raw, without skin & bone, diced
1 cup(s) frozen green peas
3/4 cup(s) uncooked macaroni
1/4 cup(s) parsley
1/2 tsp black pepper
1. In large soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add carrots, celery, garlic, onion and thyme and cook for 10 minutes or until vegetables are slightly softened
2. Pour in stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and add the chicken, peas and pasta. Simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside and pasta is al dente. Stir in parsley. Season to taste with pepper.

Another easy recipe.  Have not had a full pepper yet, but did have a bite of the mixture and it is super tasty!  Original recipe said that it made 6 servings, but I had an extra pepper (note the odd green one) and I had 18 oz of turkey instead of a pound.  These are for supper on (I think) Wed, so I’ll keep you posted on the final review.

Santa Fe Chicken
Yet another super easy recipe (can you open a can??).  Only tried a small taste and it was very tasty.  Stay tuned for later in the week when I’ll give my full review.
