Creamy Chicken & Mushroom Soup

This simple savoury soup takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish! If you just make this with mushrooms you can have this as a first course since it’s such a light soup, but to make it a little more substantial as a main dish, add some chicken breast. Still light at under 115 calories, you could easily serve this with a salad or half sandwich on the side. The recipe in the video is low fat and a great recipe to make if you like chicken soup.
