Savory Chicken Mushroom Soup with Great Northern Beans

By Jodee Weiland

It’s that time of year when everyone enjoys a delicious bowl of hot soup. There are a wide variety of soup recipes out there to choose from when making soup, so you have to decide a few things before choosing the recipe that’s right for you. Are you a clear broth soup eater or do you prefer a cream soup? I have a tendency to choose the clear broth soups because they are usually healthier and for the most part, lower in calories. I also love a soup that has lots of vegetables. So when I put together my latest soup combination, I came up with my Savory Chicken Mushroom Soup with Great Northern Beans and best of all, it is done in a crock pot!

http://learnfromyesterday.comThis wonderful crock pot soup has cut up boneless chicken breasts with a pound of sliced mushrooms. I love the rich flavor that mushrooms add to any dish and in soup, they are delicious. By using only chicken breasts, this soup is lower in calories and healthier. In addition to mushrooms and chicken breasts, I’ve added carrots, celery, and onions. These three vegetables with fresh garlic added always make a clear broth soup better tasting. Finally, adding the right seasonings to all of this help enhance the overall flavor of the soup, while making this soup a sure winner!
