Skinny Chicken Vegetable Soup – This healthy soup is filled with tons of great vegetables and chicken in a light broth. This low carb meal will leaving you feeling full and guilt-free!! Plus, it’s only 1 freestyle weight watchers point!!
This Skinny Chicken and Vegetable Soup recently became a favorite of mine. It’s exactly what I need after our Easter feast yesterday. We ate lots of yummy food and dessert, and then we dyed eggs on the back porch. And that Diet Coke I gave up for Lent was awesome too! Oh how I love Easter!
But now that I’ve indulged , it’s time for another batch of this Skinny Chicken and Vegetable Soup. I made a big pot of it one Sunday, and I divided it up for my lunches at work for the week. I even had a little leftover to freeze for another day. I ate it with a little salad on the side too. I definitely got my recommended allowance of veggies for the day!
Soup naturally fills you up so well too, so when you are cutting calories, it helps you to not feel deprived. I was seriously full after every lunch! Plus, I love how I had all my lunches planned for the week. Mornings around here can be crazy busy, and I sometimes forget to get my lunch ready in all the chaos. Getting everything prepped on Sunday solved that problem.
That same Sunday I also made these Taco Egg Muffin Cups, which are one of my FAVORITE low calorie breakfasts. I make enough to have them for breakfast all week. With these two recipes, I had a great low carb week, which is always a huge thing for me. Cutting those carbs is always the key for me. I also love these Mini Meatloaf Pepper Rings for dinner. These are insanely popular on the blog! Even my kids love them too!
I hope you enjoy this Skinny Chicken Vegetable Soup as much as I did!

I made this soup when my husband was sick and not only the soup was delicious he felt better after :).

This was absolutely delicious I’m impressed!!! I used low-sodium chicken broth . What is the measurement of one serving and how many calories would you say is in it?
Thank you for sharing this recipe 😊
Hi Vanessa! I’m so glad you liked this one! I may be making a batch of it soon for work next week. I would say it makes about 6 servings. I put it in the My Fitness Pal app and it is about 166 calories a serving.
Vanessa Hernandez says
Awesome I got exactly 6 servings out of it too. The serving size is perfect I was surprised how full I was. Wow a lot less calories than I thought. I was gonna add it to my fitness pal for my dinner how would I go about finding your soup nutrition on there? Is that even possible? ☺️ Thank you for your reply!

I am following a severely restricted calorie diet. Dr James Johnson’s Alternate Day Diet and this soup just hit the spot. Today was the first day of my diet and I did not get hungry at all. The low calorie day is only 500 calories and three servings (breakfast, lunch and supper) are 498 calories. PERFECT!
The soup tasted wonderful and I doubt whether I will try to find any other food to eat on the low calorie day, especially since it is now winter in South Africa.
Thank you so much for sharing your recipes.
Hi Jen! I’m so glad you found this recipe helpful with your plan!! I love this recipe when I’m trying to start fresh with my diet.
