Mama's Low Carb Chicken Soup

Mama's chicken soup - only better. This recipe is actually from my mother-in-law. Papa has had to go low-carb and she has come up with her own tricks to keep him satisfied. This is quick, easy and full of nutrients. And it's under 200 calories!

Ingredients


  • 14 oz. - Canned Premium Chunk White Chicken Breast (Tyson brand or other equivalent)
  • 1 - Zucchini (medium)
  • 1 cup - Scallop Summer Squash (Paddy pan)
  • 1 - Onion (medium)
  • 3 - stalks of Celery
  • 1.5 cups - Chopped Kale
  • 3 - cloves Garlic (minced or pressed through a garlic press)
  • 1 tbsp - Better Than Bouillon Organic Chicken Base
  • 6 cups - water

Ingredients Notes

Scallop squash (or paddy-pan, as mama calls them) work well in place of potato. It's an amazingly hearty substitute.
Also, if you're looking for a thicker soup, grate up the zucchini instead of dicing it.

Preparation


  • Chop Vegetables.
  • Mince or press garlic through a garlic press.
  • Add all ingredients into a 6 quart pan.
  • If using a pressure cooker - seal at high pressure and leave for 10 Minutes.
  • If using regular stovetop - bring to boil, reduce to simmer and leave for 1 hour.
  • Salt and spices to taste.
  • Serve hot.
  • Serves 4.
