This is a low fat, yet delicious soup, good for either a main course or as a soup course. I shared it with my weight loss group, and they loved it too!

It had little taste and no thickness. It is good if you are trying to lose weight, but otherwise, don't bother.

For a low fat soup this was pretty good. Instead of the cans of chicken broth I used 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 Tablespoon chicken bouillon. I also decreased the milk to 1 cup and increased the potato flakes to 1 cup. It obviously wasn't the same as a soup filled with fat but I liked it as a healthy alternative.
