I certainly wouldn't want you to walk away hungry! Since swimsuit season is upon us, so how about trying my Secret Weight-Loss Weapon Chicken Vegetable Soup? It's a healthy and satisfying way to lose weight and stay trim once you reach your goal weight without sacrificing flavor.
Weight-Loss Weapon Chicken & Veg Soup
This is my top secret weight loss weapon – the chicken vegetable soup I lived on for years as a model. It’s low fat, chocked full of yummy vegetables and chicken, and certainly satiating. My own private diet rescue remedy.
1 whole chicken (remove skin once cooked)
2 Knorr's chicken cubes
3 tablespoons mixed garlic Italian herbs
2 teaspoons Lawries salt to taste
Water (enough to cover chicken)
3 stalks celery halved
3 large carrots peeled and halved
1 medium cauliflower cut into bite-sized
1 medium broccoli cut into bite-sized
2 medium zucchini cut into bite-sized
1/2 pound green beans cut into bite-sized
8 ounces mushrooms sliced
15.25 ounces canned corn with juice
1). Bring ingredients chicken through carrots to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, until chicken is cooked. Remove chicken and set aside to cool.
2). Add cauliflower through mushrooms to boiling broth, and simmer/boil, partially covered, for 15-30 minutes (depending on how cooked you like your vegetables).
3). While vegetables are cooking, remove skin from chicken, debone, and cut chicken meat into bite-sized pieces.
4). Remove soup from heat. Add corn and chicken back in, and stir well.
Serve this hearty meal in a bowl, piping hot, on its own, or with fresh bread.
