Expert Tips

Love this soup but want to trim the fat and calories? Reduce the calories to 230 and the fat to 7 grams per serving by using a 12-ounce can of evaporated fat-free milk instead of the half-and-half.

If you prefer, use 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts for the thighs. And if your chicken broth doesn't have roasted garlic, just stir 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder into regular chicken broth.
