White Chicken Soup

I modified a recipe I found in one of my favorite cooking magazines and came up with this delicious soup.  So good, everyone had seconds and everyone wanted thirds!

  • 1 40 oz. can navy beans, drained
  • 2 10 oz. cans white meat chicken, drained
  • 1 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1 tsp salt-free seasoning
  • 1 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1 tsp Cayenne, or more to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

Add all ingredients except cheese to a large stockpot.  Heat over medium-high heat until just boiling.  Add the cheese and stir until melted.  Serve hot.  Approximately 8 servings.

Mediterranean Chicken

Here’s another of my creations, which caused a couple of boys to fall in love with black olives.  They actually ask for more olives when I serve this!

Mediterranean Chicken

  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 can black olives, drained
  • olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp oregano
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese

Brown chicken breasts in olive oil in a large skillet.  When both sides are thoroughly browned, add all the remaining ingredients except the cheese.  Cover the skillet and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.  Check periodically and add some water if needed to keep things from sticking.  Serve sprinkled with feta cheese.  This is great served with brown rice, if you have some handy.
