Pancakes and soup May 17, 2010

Filed under: Breakfast,Chicken,One dish meal,Soup — WannaBe Chef @ 7:30 pm

Today I had another protein pancake.  This time, I added a little less milk, so the batter was thicker and easier to manage.  I topped it with strawberries, light syrup and a drizzle of PB…. and I put it bottom-up on the plate so you could see the chia seeds 🙂  This whole plate has about 260 calories!

Dinner was eeeasy peasy…

Chipotle Chicken Soup
makes 4 large servings (approx. 263 calories per serving)

1 large chicken breast (8-9 ounces), cubed
1/2 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth
1 can (15 oz) pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15 oz) corn, drained
1 can (14.5 oz) fire-roasted, diced tomatoes
1 chipotle pepper in adobo, finely chopped
1 tsp adobo sauce (add only if you like it pretty hot!)
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
low-fat sour cream and chopped cilantro, for topping

-In a large soup pot, cook the chicken, adding the onions and garlic after 2-3 minutes
-Once chicken is cooked through, add the rest of the ingredients (except the sour cream and cilantro)
-Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 minutes
-Top individual servings with sour cream and cilantro
