Chicken Pot Pie Soup

Just read the title can it get ANY better?  How conforting, right?  Well, my NEW favorite website for cooking dinner is Skinny Tatse.  We are all about eating healthy these days.  I came across this recipe & made it for dinner last week.  It was ah-mazing!  SO yummy!  Not to mention filling!  It's low in calories too!  It makes a big pot of soup.  We didn't even need bread with it-obviously there's nothing like a nice chunk, of warm french bread to dip into your soup-but hey we are counting calories here!
