We made Italian chicken noodle soup with these ingredients:

  • 1 c reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • Canned, seasoned diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup cooked whole-wheat pasta

  • 3 oz cubed cooked chicken breast

  • Fresh herbs

  • Chopped scallions

 

Other ideas to try
  • Canned diced tomatoes come in several varieties—choose fire-roasted to turn up the heat.

  • Shred cooked chicken breasts instead of chopping them for a different texture.

  • Look for mushroom broth as a nice change from regular vegetable broth.

  • If you can't find broccoli slaw mix, opt for packaged coleslaw mix instead.
