When it is cold outside and I need a quick, hearty, and delicious soup, this Chicken Vegetable Soup is one that I prepare. A former editor and now writer for the magazine, Kelli Bozeman, shared this recipe with me as a low-calorie soup that is truly wonderful. I’ve made a few changes, but it remains low in calories but very high in taste with quick-and-easy preparation. On a cold, lazy day, prepare this soup and enjoy, and I think that it will become one of your go-to soup recipes.
